I've added this to my Apache httpd.conf:

ErrorDocument 404 /mailman/listinfo
ErrorDocument 403 /mailman/listinfo

That way, if someone tries to get /mailman/ it just sends them to the page
with the lists on that virtualhost.

It seems to work pretty well for the 403's but I'm not sure if that's the
right way to do a 404. It may prove problematic (user wise) when I actually
deploy it but I'll have to see then.
