[CentOS] selinux context for mm-handler?

I've got a Mailman installation running on CentOS 4 that I'd like to 
migrate to a CentOS 6 box.

My big obstacle at present is getting Mailman's mm-handler Perl 
script to run as a Sendmail local mailer with SELinux enabled.

I've tried changing mm-handler's selinux context type a few times, but 
nothing has resulted in success:

   context              result
   -------------------  -----------------------------------------
   etc_mail_t           sendmail can't execute mm-handler
   mailman_mail_exec_t  mm-handler can't load perl modules
   bin_t                mm-handler can't read Mailman data
   sendmail_exec_t      mm-handler can't read Mailman data

I'm willing and able to whip up a local policy modification, but I 
thought I'd ask if there's a standard solution to this problem; my 
Google searches have so far proven ineffective at providing pointers 
to an answer.
