Why does icculus run ezmlm instead of the latest Mailman, which *does* have 
web-based archives? I run a Mailman server over at to support a couple of lists and it's 
pretty easy to drive and fairly powerful. (I should upgrade it, as I hear 
the most recent version has yet more nice features.)

How would one know the total range of messages? Do all messages from one 
request come in one email or as distinct messages? Which header tells me 
the number of my message?
