No it isn't ... when the VPS was first setup, the agreement was that 
someone was going to setup spamassassin on it as a failback mechanism in 
case of any problems with the central spamassassin ... to the best of my 
knowledge, nobody has done that ...

Mail going out from Majordomo is set to go out three different MX servers 
so that they are spread across three postfix queues instead of 
bottlenecking into one ... there is nothing 'deeply integrated' there, its 
a performance thing that can be simply removed by doing:

  mj_shell -p XXXX configedit DEFAULT delivery_rules

A command there there are several admins on the list capable of doing ...

Even the spamassassin stuff is easily disabled by a simple modification to 
the postfix file to remove the content_filter and sqlgrey lines .. 
nothing "deeply integrated" there either, the processing is just offloaded 
to a different physical server ...

If you don't *understand* how things are setup, don't jump to the falsely 
represented it as 'deeply integrated', as there is nothing integrated with 
anything Hub related, only stuff piggy backing off of, and those things 
are be very easily detached ...
