Cool, I'm definitely open to discussions here.  One of the things I've had in
the back of my mind is to include a mailsieve implementation in Mailman.
There's now a fairly decent (so I'm told) implementation in Python, so I think
it would be feasible.  It's probably way too complicated for the average user,
but I *think* sieve might make a good technology for implementing topics-NG
and other types of filters.  And maybe make it available to advanced users to
control the email they get from a Mailman site.
