Take a look at the code behind the "Add" pick list in the ZMI.  That has
a number of examples.  

And please keep the discussion on the list.  On this list, pressing
"reply" will only address your reply to one person, not the whole list. 
Unless your mail client has a "reply to list" option, the correct way to
maintain a discussion on this list is "reply to all".  That may seem
bizarre, but it's how Mailman works (by default) and if you spend any
time on Python lists, you'll need to learn to live with it. :-)
