As Brad pointed out, you can't enable/disable each of the configuration 
options on a one-by-one basis.

You can eliminate entire 'categories' from appearing in the 
administrative interface by copying the ADMIN_CATEGORIES list from 
Defaults.py into your mm_cfg.py and deleting the categories that you 
don't want your list administrators to see.  That's an easy way to get 
rid of the Mail<>News Gateway page for example if it is not relevant to 
your installation.  (It wouldn't prevent the clever/devious 
administrator from changing the values, but it removes the temptation 
to 'tweak' by pointing and clicking.)
