You mean NOT only? That's exactly what makes it so confusing, the overall 
changes which apply to all lists change immediately, the others don't. 
However, if I dump a list configuration it's not there either. So, where is 
it? Is it in the pickle file, but not dumped?

No, there aren't any comments regarding this. Also, Default.py isn't really a 
good place to put this in.

Adding to mm_cg.py something like
"Be aware that some of the settings will only apply to new lists. If you want 
to change them for existing lists as well you need to run a withlist command, 
f.i. "bin/withlist fix-url listname"  Check the FAQ at ... for details."
would be quite helpful, imho. And if it avoids more questions like mine the 

Besides that, I don't know how many different "fix" files to propagate 
changes to existing lists are there, but wouldn't it make sense to offer a 
programm "fix_all listname" and also "fix_all <all lists>"?
