Postfix is quite different in detail, but based on what you've said
above, the equivalent of what Postfix will now do would be to just create


with the appropriate

|/usr/bin/preline @prefix@/bin/courier-to-mailman.py

content for each list_hostname.tld. As I understand it, this wouldn't
require any courrier-to-mailman.py changes as it already knows how to
deliver to the 'mailman' list.
