Hey there.  I'm in the midst of installing the mysql adaptor.  It's fairly painless,
but the distribution is misisng the patch file (there are only a few lines). 
It is too bad that it isn't in the vanilla code, but I suspect it will be for the next release.
There also has been a flurry of activity on the mailman mailing list about an improved
version of the mysql adaptor for mailman, which makes me more optimistic.

I don't think I'll go xmlrpc--just out of fear of security problems.  And the xmlrpc patch
(just released) isn't int he vanilla code either.

If you have advice, let me know.  I could go either way: (a) a mostly undertested
mysql adaptor or (b) a potentially security-hazard xmlrpc.  I'm also going with mysql
because I know it better.  And, if I get clever enough, I can integrate the mailman
userbase in with the drupal userbase!  Which would be a blast.
