That's fine.  Since we're sticking with the obscure, unintuitive syntax
(to maintain backwards compatibility for an option that not a single person
on the list said that they used and most didn't even understand)
could I persuade you to update the documentation to state clearly that
listname at domain.name is not an e-mail address, but a shortcut syntax to set
the admin url to be http://domain.name/admin/listname?

It's still godawful, and near useless.
