What I do on my boxes is put mailman's alias file in /var/mailman, along 
with the rest of the mailman installation.  It is uid & gid mailman so 
that I don't have any problems doing a bin/newlist -o, and it means I 
can back up /var/mailman and have everything I would need if I had to 
restore.  Another benefit is I can give someone else the mailman 
password and they can do everything they would need to do without 
giving them root access.

Since the general civilizations of mankind, I believe there are more
instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual
and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden
