Indeed, it can be almost automagic with Postfix, though I believe RAQ3
uses sendmail by default. You could have a little script doing something
like this:

cat $prefix/mailman/data/aliases > /etc/aliases

(where $prefix is mailman prefix, and /etc/aliases is your sendmail
alias file)

Maybe sendmail can even source several alias files.

You may need to adjust this for virtual alias compatibility, etc.

Mailman is virtual aware if I read the docs properly.
