We went with neither.  The first approach you suggested would be ideal, but
requires quite a bit of gut work on Mailman, I suspect.  The second doesn't
seem like it would scale well, and on the Apache side you'd have to settle
for HTTP/1.1 style hosting only, unless you want to burn an extra IP
address for every mailing list.  Although maybe you could hack it to all
work under a single domain for that part?

We simply decided to not allow common or generic list names, which greatly
reduces the chance of a conflict.  It's a limitation I'd like to see go
away, but it's fine otherwise, and keeps the customization to a minimum.
