[Mailman-Users] Changing the path of cgi-bin

I've been asked to change the path from ~mailman/cgi-bin to 
~mailman/something-else, the claim being security (and avoiding skript 
kiddies).    Though, with the directory aliasing, I don't see where that 
makes a bit of difference.

In my application, the httpd.conf is "embedded" such that it's run only 
to serve Mailman (stripped down).   If you have /mailman aliased to 
/mailman/cgi-bin, then renaming it to something else doesn't seem like 
it will make any difference at all.

But alas, I figured I'd ask and get some opinions first.
