This is actually pretty trivial to do. You can even get by without
learning Python (well, you'll need to know just a smidgen - but there
are plenty of examples in Mailman's code).
<This is also discussed quite thoroughly in the archives!>
from ~mailman/Mailman do a grep looking for one of the current headers:
grep X-List */*
This will show you every file that handles the X-List headers. You
probably just want to edit ~mailman/Mailman/Handlers/CookHeaders.py and
add your own. You might want to put in a check that only adds the
header to a specific list.
Remember to make a backup copy of any files before you edit them! Good
