The lists have to have unique names internally but you could set them
up so that their externally visible name is the same.

in /etc/mail/virtusertable

foo at a.com	foo-a
foo at b.com	foo-b

with appropriate aliases setup for each pointing at the internal

I haven't actually done this with mailman but see no reason why
it shouldn't work.  Oh, the html links included in emails would
have to use the internal name, guess there is a problem there. :(
