If you limit this to http(s), you could use the mailman user login cookies, 
but would have to tease the info out of the mailman source code for 
names/formats/etc (I haven't looked at this). Also, if you want them to be 
able to log in to your web page directly and not mailman's, you'll have to 
read the user info from the list's python pickle to authenticate them. This, 
of course, requires some python work :).

who can read, but not really write, python
