[Seattle-SAGE] Mailman authentication

For almost all my apps I've configured pam.d to authenticate to LDAP,
then configured the app to use pam for authentication. (On some of
them I've even gone so far as to use apache auth_pam and then told the
app to authenticate to apache.)

Don't know if that will work with mailman, but any app worth it's salt
should be able to use PAM.

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
