Yes, after sending the email I also poked around and found that / is a legal

Doing the obvious of plugging Erik.G.Lund%2FCPH at manbw.dk into the top level
listinfo webpage doesn't work, I'm guess because mailman isn't decoding the
%2F back into a / before looking it up in the user database.  The error is:

Framebuilders has no subscribed addr Erik.G.Lund%2FCPH at manbw.dk.

Going down through the subscriber list and finding the recipient doesn't do
any good either.  In that case we get:
which is easily changed to:

And that returns a 404.
