Majordomo 1.X is the one with the terribly restrictive license. 
Majordomo 2 (currently in beta) is fully built from ground up. 
Advantages with majordomo2:

1. Distributed under Apache-ish license.  I haven't asked around in
debian-legal yet.  But it sounds open to me.

2. Written modularly in perl 5.

3. Fully MIME aware.

If no one objects, I'll make this my Intent To Package majordomo2.  More
