The funny thing is that I've gotten lots of hate mail saying "how do you
dare sending my my mailman password in cleartext. STOP THIS NOW!!!", but not
one "why did this come from test-admin@lists.sf.net" :-)

That said, I very much welcome the new option in 2.1.

Am I to understand however that the sitewide list doesn't have to be a list
and can be a mail alias instead?
