It's not available because it's not available.  Yours is an unusual
use case; "normally" the poster's name is available in the From field,
or not at all.  No malice in this<wink>, it just never occurred to
anybody to make it available for message headers and footers.

This Handler could be added to a future version of Mailman, but 2.x is
not planned for further development, and 3.0 is still some months
away.  No reason for you to wait!
