That's been discussed recently on the developers list... I expect it'll make it in soon, cause it was
acknowledged as a Good Thing...  You might take it on as a cause.  I think the suggestion was
to split up the list dir into hostname buckets, and potentially going ahead and splitting up those
buckets into "a" "b" or some similar scheme now, to be prepared for the sites that need
thousands of lists.
