Many thanks.  That would be greatly appreciated.  We are a multiple-domain
site (one main, about thirty much smaller), making the transition from
majordomo to Mailman.  In general, Mailman is a huge improvement, but this
lack of true multiple-domain support is a significant retrograde aspect in
our transition.

Is there an estimate of likely timescale for 2.2 ?  (Yes, I know these
things slip!  But approximate: two months?  six months?  a year?)  When
you get to the beta stage, I would hope we could offer to try it.
