xxxlist-anon wouldn't have any subscribers other than the main list;
it's a posting tool more than a mailing list.
If you wanted to restrict postings to xxxlist-anon to people subscribed
to it, they'd subscribe to both lists, but they'd have the option for
'don't send me mail even though i'm subscribed' enabled for xxxlist-anon.
Clunky, but the best you can do without writing an anonymizing agent (script)
that preprocessed posts sent to a certain alias before forwarding them
on to the 'real' list.
