Hmm, it already does that. When you select membership, it displays them in chunks of 10 or something. I've upped mine to 30, and would actually prefer 100.
I must have broken this somehow. Checking into it...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't you do that in Apache with a slightly modified version of the lines you already have in there to get the "/mailman/" and "/pipermail/" URLs to work?
I hadn't thought of that. Yes, it should work. I've added a third
