In MM3, there are no pickles. Everything lives in a database (SQLite3 by
default), and the intent (if currently incompletely implemented) is that the
Mailman core engine is entirely controllable and inspectable over
HTTP/REST/JSON. So presumably, the MTA could query Mailman about anything,
and get a JSON response that should be easily parsed. Your MTA could of
course query the database directly, but I am not currently making any claims
about the stability of the database schema, while I do intend to support a
stable REST API.
