One thing to remember is that the lists' database cache values such as
the "web page url" and the hostname.  So once a list is created,
setting these in mm_cfg.py won't help.  In Mailman 2.0.x you can
change them through the web (but be careful because if you mess up
web_page_url you're list will be unaccessible from the web).

In Mailman 2.1, you can change hostname (i.e. the host part of email
addresses) through the web but not web_page_url (the prefix of the
url), so you'll have to change the latter from the command line.
