I've added a new configuration variable to Defaults.py.in, called
ALLOW_SITE_ADMIN_COOKIES.  Set this to true and authenticating to a
list admin login page with the site password, and Mailman will drop a
cookie representing the site authentication.  Thus, authenticate once
and you can get into every list.  The default value of this variable
is 0.
