	I guess my questions really is 'do the existing per-list 
customisation options include any way of changes to the mail headers 
beyond what is already accessible from the GUI?'
	And, as a followup, if it requires source code level changes, 
is there a sane and sensible way of doing these on a per list basis 
so my installation remains upgradable? I know python, but I'm in no 
hurry to make by installation unmaintainable.
	Alternatively, has anyone else managed to tackle the same 
problem by an alternative route, say procmail, or via their MTA rules 
(postfix in my case, despite my other thread).

	I did. It told me mailman wasn't a CRM and I shouldn't expect 
to do any customisation on an individual message basis (apart from 
VERP) which I was already pretty clear on. I don't want complex per 
user customisation (which the FAQ entry was pretty clear I wouldn't 
get), I want simple per list customisation (which the FAQ entry left 
me a bit unsure about).
