	Yes.  In fact, you can have a different one for each language 
supported by each mailing list.

	That's correct.

	It all depends on where your machine puts the Mailman stuff.  By 
default, that's normally put into /usr/local/mailman, but that 
default may not be applicable to your installation.

	It could be.  Does your machine put all the Mailman stuff under 
/mailman?  If so, then you're probably correct.

	Assuming the answer to the previous question is "Yes", then you 
have also figured out the answer to this question.
