(Brad asked that I submit this.)

I manage 10-15 mailing lists and needed a more efficient way
to plow through mail held for review. Attached is the Python
script I wrote (mmfold.py). It presents the messages one
per line, just the subjects, and makes the default action "discard".
(I wrote this around the same time, but somewhat before, the
"discard defers" checkbox was added to Mailman.)

I drive it with a simple shell function:

function mmcheck {
for url in \ http://mail.python.org/mailman/admindb/python-mode \ http://mail.python.org/mailman/admindb/pydotorg \ http://mail.python.org/mailman/admindb/python-dev
do
python ~/tmp/mmfold.py $url
done
}

and execute the front-end script a couple times a week.

Use it in good health.
