If you have shell access on a Mailman host you can pretty much do as you
wish, including circumventing a lot of Mailman's privacy walls, all
without having system root access.  This is both good and bad,
obviously, and is mostly an argument for being cautious about who has
terminal access on a server running Mailman.
