I've been doing this for ages on all the publically known mailing lists.
What I did was re-alias the posting address to

copilot-announce:		 "|/usr/bin/procmail -m MAILMAN=copilot-announce /etc/procmailrcs/mailman"
rfc:		 "|/usr/bin/procmail -m MAILMAN=rfc /etc/procmailrcs/mailman"

Then /etc/procmailrcs/mailman is a file that belongs to user
"nobody.nobody" (because that's who Mailman expects mail to come from)
which looks sort of like:


* ^Content-Type: multipart/
    :0 B:
    * ^Content-Type:.*(^.*)?name=.*\.(bat|com|exe|lnk|pif|scr|shs|vbs)

| ${SPAMC}

* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes

|/var/mailman/mail/mailman post ${MAILMAN}

With so many "textbook cases" of single points of failure, you'd think
that we'd stop building systems to demonstrate the concept.
