Having said all that, one thing that might work is for the Mailman Core to 
provide the ability to retrieve key/value pairs that can be attached to any 
given resource.  This is sufficiently simple to mean it would present no 
problems for forward compatibility.

key/value pairs would suffice for some applications but as soon as you tried to 
build any serious third party Mailman application you’d fairly rapidly move 
beyond the capabilities of a key/value store.

So there is something to be said for a very simple Mailman Core key/value store 
mechanism that would meet some simple needs. The argument against this is “well 
you’re going to outgrow it pretty quick anyway so why not immediately start 
with a more full featured data store”.
