Hmm.  I am not running 1.1, I'm running 2.02b, but I am able to modify
each individual page (it lives in the /home/mailman/lists/listname/
directory as "listinfo.html") for each list.  So I modified the
templates in the templates directory to use my stylesheets, backgrounds,
colors, etc. but do the rest of the cleanup for my announce-only lists
by hand.

I wouldn't call it intuitive; you have to be careful which Mailman
widgets you step on in the page, but you can always refer back to the
templates directory if you don't like what you produce.
