[Mailman-Users] Using with a database and *without* a webserver

I've been contracted to do a Mailman setup for a company that wants to set 
up a newsletter-type list.  They'd like to use a database for the back-end 
and to hide as much of Mailman's internals as possible without creating 
too much work.

First, databases.  We'd prefer to use PostgreSQL but I've not managed to 
find any code for doing this.  We can use MySQL instead.  I found a guide 
which references files at 

Is this the best approach/patch to use?  Do people doing this use 
something else?

As for the web stuff, are there things we need the web interface for or 
can we do everything via the command line?  I'm thinking we probably need 
the web UI for some things but don't recall exactly what.
