I need to setup a system with around 15,000 lists. Have other people  
been using mailman for such a large number of lists? One thing that  
concerns me is that there doesn't seem to be any support for a hashed  
directory structure for storing the the lists config and archives under:


The concern is that on a unix filesystem it is very slow to access  
directories with thousands of entries.

Apart from this are there likely to be an issues with hosting so many  

thanks, iain.
