[Mailman-Users] mm_htaccess questions

The FAQ has two scripts to use to generate an Apache password file that can 
be used to authenticate a directory with Mailman passwords, in my case, the 
archive directory for one of my lists.

The script mm_htaccess works fine, but I was wondering if anyone had 
fine-tuned it.

I want it only to work for one list, and only if that list was new.

I also can't seem to get it not to write error messages (or really, it just 
writes its report to the cron id, but it won't send it to /dev/null or a 
file since I assume it is writing the password added as an error message, 
not just standard output.)

Glenn Sieb added a makefile script which works for all lists, but that's 
more than I need.

Has anyone done any of this for their lists?  I know if I spend enough time 
with a Perl manual I should be able to get this to work, but didn't want to 
reinvent any wheels.

Thanks in advance.
