It doesn't look like sendmail is the greatest MTA for
use with Mailman.  What is a good MTA that seems to work
well with Mailman?

Depending on your MTA and its configuration, yes, this is true.
Some MTAs, such as Exim and Postfix, can be configured to not need a
list alias file at all.

No.  You need to manually add the aliases as provided by newlist.
