The problem is that MailList.MailList() isn't being passed any arguments,
and so the name argument is defaulting to None.  Either newlist:85 needs to
pass a name, or (perhaps better yet) MailList.MailList.InitTempVars()
needs to Do The Right Thing (tm) (like come up with some default name)
when name == None.

I don't fully understand what this name is supposed to be, so bwarsaw will
need to be consulted on this.  However, my guess would be to change line
85 of bin/newlist from:

	newlist = MailList.MailList()


	newlist = MailList.MailList(list_name)
