Barry was speaking about Mailman 2.1 there, you don't start the
qrunners from cron in Mailman 2.1

In Mailman 2.0.x when you start a second qrunner for the same
Mailman installation, the new qrunner will just exit.  This
doesn't help you.

(In the possibly-pretty-unique situation that I have, with
_many_ Mailman 2.0.x installs per server, it's a bad idea to
start those multiple qrunners directly from cron.)
