There is no easy way to do this, but luckily someone else has already
mucked through the source and posted a patch to make it a little
easier. Dan Mick has a patch on SourceForge that will let you
duplicate all of the files in templates/ inside the lists/listname/
folder. Then you can edit each file on a per-list basis.
The patch is a neat work around, but I think this question gets asked
enough for it to be an official Feature Request. Web sites want
broadcast lists. It's a VERY common request.
