Just for fun, I applied both the prerequisite modinc-2.1.12-0.1.patch
and the mhonarc-2.1.12-0.1.patch to Mailman 2.1.18-1

Both patches failed to patch Mailman/Version.py because the 2.1.18-1
DATA_FILE_VERSION is 105 and in 2.1.12 it was 97. This is trivial to
fix. Just increment DATA_FILE_VERSION to 105.2.

The only other failure was in Mailman/Mailbox.py because Mailman 2.1.18
adds a skipping() method to the end of the module. Again, it is very
simple to manually add the intended changes.

Everything else applied with at most line number offsets.
