...Which I think is not a great idea.  On virtually all of my machines, I am
constantly adding in domains.  I certainly don't want to have yet another file
that has to be maintained just for mailman.  Let me specify the domain, or
take it from the current hostname, if you're using the web interface.

FWIW, when you use the bin/newlist command and specify the domain name, it
still doesn't generate all the virtual junk that Postfix needs.
