What's really weird about debian list latency is that the mail server
itself doesn't seem sluggish; I'll wathc the logs and messages to the
list(s) are accepted in a reasonable period of time.  Messages to
"majordomo@lists.debian.org" (the "MajorSmart" thing) are turned
around in seconds even when I may not see my post to (say) debian-user
for several minutes.  It's very odd.
