Thanks, Ashley!

I know about the `xxx-request' addresses that are specific to the
configured mailing lists. What I intended to ask about is a single
general mailman address, that is as compatible as possible to what at
a majordomo installation usually can be reached at
<majordomo at do.main>. If it would be possible, I'd like to support such
an address for compatibilty reasons because many people might be
familiar with our site's majordomo setup.

Another reason is this: I wonder whether it is true that people who
want to ask for general `help' on mailman or intend to issue a `lists'
command really have to be aware of an already existing mailing list.
