ListProc uses only one -request address, I think that this is better than
have a lot of -request address (like mailman) all doing (basically) the
same., after all , the list manager is mailman, not the list in question.

I'm looking one interesting things, how could someone look all the list
running on mailman if he dont subscribe to any of them?
sending e-mail to where??
suppose that he dont know nothing about mailman and he dont have direct
access to internet, so he has only one chance: e-mail command
