Which is better, to add the name to the aliases file or to put it 
into the virtusertable?

Of course, this doesn't just apply to Mailman, but to any user I'm 
aliasing. Does anyone know the real "rules" about what's an alias and 
who is a virtual user? My guess is that aliases would be used for 
real accounts on the system but that virtual users would be programs 
like Mailman or users who don't have a physical account on system but 
are using a system address.
