I don't know of another way. But, I can see this as being somthing that
maybe should be in a newer version of mailman. Allowing to tie additional
address (aliases) for one member of a list. Because with the option we've
discussed, the added member can pretty much have free reign to posting to
that list, at least in my understanding, as the actual option is not for
differing addresses, but appears to be intended for allowing people to
simply post, with or without the admin's approval -which, in some cases,
could turn out to be bad.
