What do you want to see integrated?

It's trivial to have a mailing list sign-up form integrated into a website. This is from http://www.EcoReality.org, a MediaWiki site I modified:

	<div class="portlet"><div class="pBody">
	<form action="http://www.ecoreality.org/mailman/subscribe/advisory" method="post" style="display:inline">
	<table border="0" cellpadding="1">
	<tr><td colspan="2"><div align="center"><i><b><font size="-2">Get our newsletter!</font></b></i></div></td></tr>
	<tr><td align="left">Name:</td> <td><input type="text" name="fullname" size="10" value=""></td></tr>
	<tr><td align="left">Email Address:</td> <td><input type="text" name="email" size="10" value=""></td></tr>
	<tr><td colspan="2"><div align="center"><input type="submit" name="Subscribe!" value="Subscribe!"></div></td></tr>

I can't imagine needing other functions "integrated," but perhaps I simply lack imagination...

Regardless, all I did to integrate mailing list sign-up was to "observe" what the Mailman sign-up form was doing, and then I POSTed the same fields to it from a different form. I think it would be fairly easy to get Mailman to do anything you want in a similar manner. Just go to the form that does what you want to integrate, and look at the HTML source, copy, paste, modify, and Bob's your uncle!

Or perhaps I totally missed what it was you were asking for.
