I'm sure that's correct since changes to mm_cfg.py are global and can
be fatal if mistakes are made.

It shouldn't have any negative effects, but it will have effects on the
Content-Transfer-Encoding: of Mailman generated messages. I.e. it
could cause messages which were previously unencoded to be
quoted-printable (or in the case of utf-8 rather than iso-8859-1,
base64) encoded. This could be visible to users with primitive MUAs.
