It is wirth observing that creating and deleting lists via a web
interface is not entirely trivial. For one it is inherently tied to
the MTA's aliases file, which, by crazy coincidence, is NOT
necessarily either in a standard format OR a standard location. Now
MailMan can handle half of that by mandating where the aliases will
be stored, but that does nothing about file formats and MTA
IIRC, Qmail for instance uses a non-sendmail aliases file format.
