Note that the message delivery subsystem, while modernized and ported to
Python 3, is largely inherited from Mailman 2, which means that reliability
and performance *of message delivery* should be about the same.

Over in mailman-developers we've had some discussion about performance of the
REST server, which by default gets vended by Python 3's stdlib wsgiref module
and probably would be improved by a better wsgi application server such as
gunicorn.  Follow ups to -developers on that topic please.
