Some folks have pointed out that by setting the host_name value on each list
makes it work fine for vhosts.  I've never tried it.  I went a different
route instead: different installations, on the same machine, same user ID,
just different directories.  It works for me.  <list>@domainA.com is
different than <list>@domainB.com (where <list> is the same name and both
domains are hosted on the same physical machine)
