It doesn't seem to work properly:

tfheen@arabella ~/workdir/debian/mailman > grep ^Depends mailman-2.0.8/debian/control
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, python, logrotate, cron (>= 3.0pl1-42), sendmail | mail-transport-agent, apache | httpd, debconf
tfheen@arabella ~/workdir/debian/mailman > lintian mailman_2.0.8-2.dsc      
tfheen@arabella ~/workdir/debian/mailman >
