Well, technically, you could have two or more parallel installs of
Mailman.  There are quite a few folks who do that when they have just a
few virtual domains to worry about.

Also, you can alias
  list01 at domain2.com ==> list01-domain2
And let the (hidden) real name of the list be list01-domain2.
Of course then you have to do a lot of editing of the web-pages to
display the domain information that you want.

That is the way I normally do it.  The webpages all aliases properly as
do the email addresses, so the end-user is non the wiser.

And yes, it sure would be easier if mailman used only the virtual host
information when setting up it's web pages and sending out its emails.

Good Luck
