[Mailman-Users] Prioritizing mails?

We're runnging a mailman server with a lot of lists. Today somebody sent
quite a large mail (attachment) to a newly created list with 14.000

This caused all other mail via Mailman to be more or less stalled. Is
there a way of assigning priorities to lists, like giving all lists
"normal" priority and large lists "low" priority?

OTOH sending small mails to large lists is ok, so maybe the product of
"size_of_mail" and "number_of_list_recipients" could be used to adjust
the priority accordingly....
