Well that's ridiculous!  I can think of a work-around right now (without 
having even glanced at the code).

Find the section of mailman that sends out the Message and add a conditional. 
Something like, 
  if welcome.<listname>.txt exists welcome.fil = welcome.<listname>.txt 
  else welcome.fil = welcome.txt

Then simply put in a custom welcome file for any list that you want.  This 
works for any of the other files you want to use in Mailman as well.

I'll see if I can find the official work-around.  If not, I'll look at the 
code and see if I can pinpoint it for you quickly.
