But, what happens if at some other time you do a bin/arch --wipe 
<listname>?  Are the .mbox files kept around to rebuild the web 
archives from, or would they also go with a rmlist?  If they're wiped, 
then the first suggestion (remove all users, require authorization to 
join list), plus removing the aliases, would probably be best.
