Yeah, no problems here.  In fact, the *production* setup includes things 
to divide out the directories appropriately, the problem was mostly that 
our instructions start with "unpack this somewhere" for the test setup, 
which mostly leaves people with a running mailman install in their home 
directories, sometimes to their surprise. ;)

Docs have been updated and I tested that it didn't cause weird behaviour 
to install, and the only problem was when I forgot to give myself write 
access to /opt/mailman before I began, which I think is more a me 
problem than a mailman-bundler documentation one.
