what I had in mind was to let mailman provide a "unified
interface" to two or more different mail sources...

(e.g. people sign up to python-checkins, and gets
messages from either python-checkins-standard or
python-checkins-slow_modem, depending on a user-
dependent setting...)

but no, you don't have to implement that now ;-)
