We did that in the beginning (during testing phase). It was stopped
before go live. Not exactly sure why. Probably because:
1. Not sure how many people want this
2. It severely increases the size of the mailing list archive (every
mail is stored twice and also backed up)
3. It creates problems for svn-commits-list (bigger mails = slower mail
+ and one point mailman will ask moderators to approve it).

So it is possible, but am not sure of the benefits. There are 127
subscribers at the moment. I'd like some feedback first on who would
find this useful and if there would be objections. This as it already is
a high volume list, I don't want to unexpectedly increase the size of
the emails.
