"all those years ago" and before, things like "real" databases,
checkpointing, recovery and rollback, and adding 7000 users at once to a
mailing list were not things we thought much about in a mailing list
manager. The fact that Mailman has "been been trouble- and
maintenance-free" for you for all those years is a tribute to the fact
that we got at least most of it right.

If you want a mailing list manager with a modern design, I'd recommend
Mailman 3.

And "abort the running op because my browser timed out" is not Mailman's
doing. That's your web server and its CGI interface.
