I don't know of a way to do this with Mailman out of the box.
However, if you think of Mailman as a mailing list construction set, you
could build a custom pipeline stage that did it. (Steal some of the
code from the Cleanse.py pipeline stage's anonomizing section, but pull
the name from the From: header before deleting the original one.)
Each list can have its own custom pipeline. Use bin/withlist to add a
.pipeline object based on the mm_cfg.GLOBAL_PIPELINE, but with your new
stage just before Cleanse.
(More details on the custom pipeline technique are in the list archives.)
