Why not use the subpackage approach I suggested ? 

It keeps the std lib in a sane state (meaning that the std lib 
installation only depends on the Python installation and no other 
hacks on top of it).

Since you'll have to ship the complete package anyway, 
I don't see any win in installing over the std email 
package. If that's what you really want, I'd suggest to provide 
the updated email package as separate download and then test
inside Mailman for the new version.
