In Mailman 2.1 you can drop your customized listinfo.html file into
the lists/<mylist>/en directory (assuming you're changing the English
version of the text) and Mailman will automatically pick it up for
myst the `mylist' list.  The complete look up rules are documented in
a comment before the maketext() function in Mailman/Utils.py.

It can be done in MM2.0, but I honestly don't remember the details and
I don't have time right now to swap in those brain cells.
