I think it would have to be broken.  The `quick-fix' approach I've
been mulling would involve encoding the domain into the path to the
list's config.db file.  I think it would be pretty painful to do that
and arrange for lists to span multiple domains.

But then again, maybe not.  If the list's directory lived in
$mailman/lists then it would span, but if it lived in
$mailman/lists/$domain it would not span.

Note, I'm no where near complete in my thinking on this, except to say
that I believe the current situation is liveable and I've got other
things higher up on my TODO list.
