Yes, but if you control the Mailman from Zope, you will of course not need
the cgi component, which only provides management interfaces and the mailing
list archives, not the actual mail sending functionality.

There already seems to be a product that can do this. But as I stated above,
I'd take the Mailman code as a library and rewrite the management screens in
Zope. For adding a new list, you still need to change stuff in the mail
configuration of your machine (i.e. create an alias for the list). This
COULD be scripted from Zope, but might be a security issue.
