mailman 2 stores its config data in the file system, in *.pck files,
which are basically persistent python hash tables. there is no SQL
support. in fact, getting mailman to run with postfix when postfix is
using SQL to store its config, is well nigh impossible.
mailman 3 is not yet ready for prime time. it will use a shim layer than
can be provided by postgresql. you do not need to think about mailman 3 yet.
