Great example. I am hoping to introduce a system for making it easier to 
group and share such customizations.

Perfect. There is really no good reason that feature is not available in 
the GUI :-)

Unfortunately, MailMan (the mailing list software) strips the markup 
parameter from the message. It actually works if HTML generation is 
enabled and then the markup parameter is not stripped from the plain 
text body part. Not sure what to do about it other than trying to patch 
MailMan (but that'll then only work for the MailMate list). I've 
considered adding an extra header to plain text mailing list messages, 
but it feels redundant and I'm actually not sure that MailMan would 
leave such a header alone.

(If I remember correctly then it may also work if I tell MailMan to not 
add a footer to the messages.)
