Do you just want to change the name of the language from "English
(USA)" to "English" or do you want to create a new translation from US
English to Australian English :-) ?

Do do the former, you could put

add_language('en',    'English',       'us-ascii')

or if you prefer

add_language('en',    'English',       'utf-8')

in mm_cfg.py.

To do the latter, see the README-I18N.en document in the mailman
distribution and/or http://www.list.org/i18n.html
