[Mailman-Users] Pluggable authentication for Mailman web interface?

Are there any guidelines for adding authentication and /or authorization mechanisms to the Mailman web user interface?
Specifically, I was wondering if there is any kind of guidance for authenticating the user via an HTTP header (e.g. HTTP_REMOTE_USER) so that an authenticating reverse proxy could be placed in front of the Mailman web interface.

If there is no such built-in mechanism or pluggable mechanism, is there any kind of guidance on how the existing authentication mechanism might be replaced from a technical standpoint?
