That's nice for Dreamhost. My host doesn't support Mailman and many 
other hosts I know of do not. And as I said, the people who need 
throtling the most can't install Mailman. It is an incomplete solution.

Let me be clear. I'm not saying don't add Mailman support. But 
however you support mail throttling should not be tied exclusively to 
Mailman. Mail throttling should either be supported directly or 
though an interface the proposed Mailman plugin takes advantage of. 
Perhaps the best solution would be to do something like database 
support. Have a lib-email and a system/classes/email with email 
"engines". The Mailman specific code goes in 
system/classes/email/mailman.class.php. And someone could write a 
different support class for hosts without Mailman support.
