Next thing you know you'll be advocating /opt and other Sun-brain

  ObRant: Isolated directory hierarchies for applications are
  DOS/Windows-like and make managing filesystem allocation a pain.

I prefer an FHS based install:

  templates go in /etc/mailman
  logs go in /var/log/mailman
  executables go in /usr/sbin (newlist, find_member, etc)
  CGIs go under /usr/lib/cgi-bin

Makes things easily manageable and in-line with the rest of the
system.  Happily the Debian Mailman package does this by default.
Damned nice job there actually.  <waves>
