The issue is that:

1. I want him to be a co-moderator of ONE list, not all of them.
2. I want to have the same admin password for all my lists, not
   25 individual separate passwords, and that's what the system
   is set up to give me.
3. I want him to have his own password, not my password.

Are you saying that:

1. What I have is "the site password" (whatever that means)
2. I can use this as a list password
3. I can also use it to create a list password which I then give
   to him as his individual password (though I could also use it
   as an admin password)

Is that what you are saying?
