I already helped Ed on IRC, but for the sake of convenience to 
archive-readers and other interested parties, here's the way I deployed 
mailman on divmod.org.

== /home/mailman/twisted.run/mailman.tac ==

import sys

from twisted.internet import app
from twisted.web import server, distrib, twcgi, static
from twisted.spread import pb

application = app.Application('mailman-web')

r = twcgi.CGIDirectory('/home/mailman/run/cgi-bin')
r.putChild('pipermail', static.File('/home/mailman/run/archives/public'))

site = server.Site(r)
