I want to move lists from one machine (mailman 2.0.x) to a newer 2.1.x 
installation. Assuming I

- tailor new host http.conf as needed
- set mmsitepass on new
- modify mm_cfg.py, 
- use web redirects from the old to the new
- redirect aliases on old to new
- scp $MAILMAN/archive/private/<LISTNAME{.mbox> to new host
- genalias on new host
- run $MAILMAN//bin/update -f   on new host

I still need to copy over and convert $MAILMAN/lists/<LISTNAME>*
right? I presume the big deal is {config|request}.db. I can use dumpdb to
get that to ascii, how do I load it into the new as config.pck?
