Erez, take a look at bin/config_list. What you can do is set up some
basic templates for values you want in common on all your lists, then
install them via bin/config_list. Note that you do /not/ have to have
all the variables in your template that are given by config_list -o.
If you omit some from your template, they won't be changed in the
target mailing list.
