And if
history | grep mmsitepass
shows you the site password, you should consider using the parameterless
form of mmsitepass instead.  I had forgotten that it could be used either
with password in the command line (nice for scripting) or without (prompting
for the password), until I checked just now.

(It's a somewhat nasty exception to the fact that *most* things in
~mailman/bin give their usage if called with no parameters.)
