With unmodified, standard Mailman source code, there is a single 
namespace for list names shared by all virtual host supported by a 
given Mailman installation. Multiple installations on the same machine 
can be used to avoid the list naming restrictions this creates.

The modified version of Mailman, shipped by Cpanel as part of their 
commercial hosting product for ISPs, adopts a different, 
list-name-munging solution to the problem but Cpanel have not made the 
modified source code generally available in the public domain.
