Right, if the ISP is offering Mailman as a 'canned' service *AND* you're 
not allowed to install your own copy and use that instead, then you can't 
install any patches.  The good news is that even if the Mailman authors 
were to decide to make the List-* headers a per-list option in 2.1 (which 
they won't), you'd probably have no luck convincing the ISP to upgrade 

Sometimes an ISP will offer Mailman as an installable software option via 
checkbox on your web-based server configurator etc... but actually you 
could install your own copy if you wanted to.  In that case, install it 
yourself and patch away.

Personally, I wouldn't run Mailman somewhere I hadn't installed it.

Still on my todo list is a per-list config patch for the headers.
