It is worth noting that instructions are available for some MTAs
(like Exim) such that no aliases ever need be added.  The MTA
auto-recognises the existance of all lists due to the fact taht the
customisations know about how Mailman works.

Very neat.  Nigel's HOW-TO for Exim in this regard is well done.
