Right.  In MM2.1 we've changed from a marshal format to a pickle
format because the latter is much more robust.

bin/withlist is the way I'd do it, although that'll be a bit manual.
In the next beta release, bin/fix_url.py will make this much easier
once you've set up your virtual domains.

I'm not sure I understand the question.  config.pck acts just like the
old config.db files did, i.e. when you make a change to your list
config, it writes a new config.pck, then rotates the old one to a
backup file.  MM2.1 won't touch your config.db files after converting
them to .pck files.
