I think I get the high-level concept here, but I'm fuzzy on some things, 
including how to implement this.

Is this how one can/should it?  In this context:

         Default URL and email host domain = lists.default.tld
         Virtual URL and email host domain = lists.virtual.tld
         Setup mailman at lists.default.tld as usual

...how would I route and web-interface mailman at lists.virtual.tld to 
mailman at lists.default.tld (assuming this what I should do)?  I'm not yet 
sure exactly how to email alias/route this (although I suspect I can 
probably do this via my qmail or postfix setup), but I really have little 
idea about how to make the user/admin web interface correlate these 2 things.

I will also have multiple virtual domains (call them lists.virtual2.tld, etc).

Sorry if this is an ignorant question.  Could someone possibly step me 
through the details of this configuration?

I'm hoping to do this for my "hacky" way to support virtual domains right 
now in lieu of building a mailman install for every domain (and dealing 
with the shared mailing list namespace across all domains).
