I figured out how to support Postfix-style virtual domains[1] in a
similar manner to the main aliases file, but I'm too tired to finish
implementing it tonight.

Bob's right, if you're using Postfix-style virtual domains, we need to
write into another file, and it doesn't need to be your main virtual
file.  In fact, it'll be called $prefix/data/virtual-mailman and
you'll need to add something like that path to your virtual_maps
variable (and /not/ run postmap on it!  We'll take care of that for

If you're not using virtual domains, or you're using Sendmail-style
virtual domains, we don't need to do anything extra.  There will be an
mm_cfg variable POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS, defaulting to 0, which
you'll set to 1 if you're doing Postfix-style virtual domains.
