You can't do that. If you binary patch, you need to replace with a string of
the exact same length. If you don't, it renders the file unusable.
The hostname has to be changed through the web interface, or with the help
of the config_list script that is in mailman cvs (pre-1.2)
If you rename a list, you need to use move_list, which also is in cvs
