The patch is buggy and I should really get around to updating the
Sourceforge web page about it.  It works OK if you create a new list
but doesn't detect if the field is missing in an existing list
and add it unfortunately.

I'm CC'ing mailman-developers to ask for advice, I know it goes
somewhere in the versioning code, but where?  And how do I do it such
that future upgrades etc don't break?
