There was an old way using luser_relay, recipient_delimiter, and a
Mailman script called `auto'.  I suggest searching the archives for
this (yes, you can search the archives if you go to search.python.org,
and select "Python Mailing List Archives" and nothing else).

The new religion for MM2.1 will involve adding an alias_maps entry
pointing to $prefix/data/aliases which Mailman will manage
automatically for you.  Discussion of this is in the
mailman-developers archive.
