[Haskell-cafe] mailing list choices?

I would call Yahoo and Google groups a major step backwards from mailman.

Subject: [Haskell-cafe] mailing list choices?

I want to set up some kind of mailing list for reactive (which I plan to release soon).  The most obvious thing is to set up a mailman-based list on haskell.org, but I wonder -- do people really want to keep using mailman technology?  Or something more modern like Yahoo or Google groups.  

I use my email reader also with Yahoo & Google groups, so my day-to-day experience is the same as with mailman-based lists.  For less regular operations like searching archives, I prefer the experience on Yahoo & Google group.  And I like some of the other modern features, like personal profiles and polls.

I've been wondering if haskellers really like mailman or are just used to it.  Maybe people make new mailman lists simply because others did it before them.

Any thoughts/preferences?  Thanks,
