Shouldn't be hard at all. I've been meaning to knock one up but never
got round to it.

I must have missed something a while back (not unlikely cos I'm full of
the cold at the moment) but what are templates? As in for the web or
something else.

Like I said, apologies, I'm have stupid with virii at the moment.

Good plan.

Assuming $self is the plugin ...

$self->config($message, 'key'); # get
$self->config($message, 'key', 'value'); # set

this will set the default, per-user, per-list or per-user-per-list
config depending on whether $message->list and $message->result return
undef or not. This is possibly a little complicated but it means that

The admin can have the system wide default for ReplyTo munging as off. 
The admin can then decide that on one particular list he wants ReplyTo
munging *on*. This is the 'per-list' config.

But a user can have her's as on (I'd do this for example). This will
ovverride the system wide default and the per-list config (if set) for
that user only. This is per-user config. 

The user can then decide that for one particular list they want to have
ReplyTo munging off. This will override everything else. This is

Yes. Good idea. Infact, I'm not sure why we haven't done this before.

I ... I ...  I love you. 


Seriously, that would be fantastic. I want to get the usability of nacho
sorted out and a web based interface done. Then I want to knock together
a tool for stealing Mailman (and later, majordomo and ezmlm) configs
which shouldn't be that hard.
