I don't have a quick answer.  (It's been a long time since i worked on
mailman, and this stuff in particular has changed a lot.) It looks like
the code in Mailman/Handlers/SMTPDirect.py is what's of interest, and it
doesn't depend too elaborately on the rest of mailman, which is good.  
I'm have no idea whether it solves the problem of doing unblocking
delivery in a way that lets the delivery requester get a status back.
