I agree with the logic, but I'd like a method to create listname at domain
-without- altering the urlhost.

	$ bin/newlist listname at mailhost
	..seems intuitive but breaks compatibility

	$ bin/newlist listname --mailaddr=listname at mailhost
	..would suit my needs as long as urlhost was left alone
