You can specify any user id Mailman needs to run on, but what you'll
certainly need is access to /cgi-bin and access to the aliases file.
The latter is probably only writable for root. This is a fundamental
problem, because Mailmans cgi-script need to be in a directory with a
Apache ScriptAlias option and without the aliases file you can't make
a mailinglist.
