Yes. The admin(s) will see each bounce, just as they see the ones now
that the bounce processor doesn't know how to understand. But that
also stops Mailman from managing the bounces.

I don't think that will achieve your goal because of the way it
interacts with minimum_removal_date which tries to protect against
disabling someone if their mailserver has a bad day.

How about adding yourself to the list-admin alias so that both you and
Mailman got a copy of the raw bounce?
