What we did when we had to do this was simply set up the web machine as 
a proxy. you still run mailman via apache on your main box, but nobody 
talks to it, all the web traffic proxies through the apache on the 
other box. Works fine, takes about 10 lines in the http.conf, and 
allows you to put the mailman machine safely behind a firewall and the 
web stuff into a DMZ zone.

If you absolutely, positively don't want to run apache on the mailman 
machine at all, you're asking for grief. But running it behind a set of 
ACLs that lock it down so only the proxy machine can talk to it works, 
is a lot simpler, and still secure.
