	They are there, and named the way they are, for a reason.  If you 
do this, then you're unlikely to be able to get any help from anyone 
who is familiar with the standard Mailman stuff.  You're painting 
yourself into a corner where you will have little or no support that 
you can call on when you have problems in the future.

	What are you really trying to accomplish?

	If you're bound and determined to go about making changes of this 
nature, then you're talking about making source code modifications to 
programs like genaliases.
