Yes, it is good to be able to customize each lists listinfo.html,
but it'd also be nice to be able to customize the welcome
message text that gets sent out to new subscribers.
For announce only lists, I'd like to remove the misleading
paragraph explaing how to post to a list which I've made moderated
and "unpostable to".
