Kind of an off-shoot question, but has anyone created functions to interface
PHP and one of the popular mailing list management software packages like
Majordomo or Mailman?

Use PHP to manage a list of subscribers that is in a format acceptable to 
your MTA (.qmail, sendmail alias file, etc.). Then you can just use one 
call to mail() and let your MTA take care of it, which is what it's made 
for (and not what PHP is made for).
