Indeed, it sounds like an odd request.  Ask them what they'd like to
see for a list with 1000, or <gasp> 10k members. :)

No, stock Mailman doesn't support this, but it could be hacked in
(though I really can't understand why they'd want this).  You'll need
to write some Python.  An approach to take is to write a handler
module for the Handlers subdir that takes the message metadata's
`recips' key, and string join's those together, splatting them into
your header of choice.

If that doesn't make sense, you'll need to spend some time studying
the code first. :)
