Would it too much to ask for the 'old' (read 'current') scripts/commands
to be aliased: at least in the first few releases?

    e.g., for 'list_members' to link to 'mailman listmembers'

Perhaps as an install/configure/compilation option?
    "Create old-style links?"

(maybe that's more for people who package: ISTR a couple of packagers
are on list, yes?)

(wonders how many other people have scripts that would need re-writing
