I'm eager to get this out where we have more influence over it!

I'd note we are likely to lose any special options set for different
subscribers.  That is, since the old system isn't mailman, I'm likely
to just grab the whole subscriber list, and all of them will be regular
subscribers (one email per message).  Digest, or "no mail" settings would
be lost.
