Bad news: majorcool doesn't work with mj2.
Good news: it contains its own integrated user and admin web interfaces.

Much demime functionality (the de-MIME-ing) is built in.
Digest index formats and message numbering ditto.
MIME or plain-text digest choice ditto.
No non-member submission can be controlled by an access rule.
Confirmation is not just-reply -- that's a great way to get blocklisted
-- but it is simpler, with a clickable URL.
Where and how authorization works is quite flexible.

Can they figure out how to click a URL?

Again: you're asking for block-listing.

It works fine for most of us on many releases -- perhaps you should have
asked on the mj2-dev list.
As for migration, once you build and install the software, and change
your MTA configuration as documented to use the auto-generated aliases
files, it asks if you want your Majordomo 1.x lists converted to Mj2.
