Plone is about to get a little bit faster when I finally pull the 
trigger and complete the migration to the new server (it's still 
sluggish on the new 3.0 GHz and 2GB RAM box that is new.scipy.org--I 
think in addition to the system upgrade, it's time to introduce 
SciPy.org to Squid, I think they'd be good friends).  But it won't fix 
the squeezed in problem.  It might be nicer for readers for us to bring 
the SciPy style over to the Mailman pages rather than forcing mailman to 
display within SciPy.org...I'll spend some time on it sometime soon.
