	This is what ./bin/move_list is for:

	./bin/move_list -h

Move a list to a new directory.

What this really does is just update the three archive list attributes
public_archive_file_dir, private_archive_file_dir, and archive_directory
recalculating them based on the new Defaults.  It then saves the list.

    move_list [options] listname

        Print this help message and exit.

listname must be a valid mailing list name and is required.
