LOL. I'll work on the handler. I'm not sure whether I can do this is a
shared hosted environment, though. I'm looking into it.

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!
