Are you saying that this is a one-time change?  Or are you looking for
something that will allow a regex for acceptable_aliases?

If the former, you're probably better off asking the admin with shell
access to to a $prefix/bin/add_members and $prefix/bin/remove_members 
on the list.

If the latter, there was talk about it in mid-April on Mailman-Developers,
but I haven't had time to do anything other than talk (since I'm the one
who wanted that change, the onus is on me to do it).  :)
