	Nope.  I don't think that this is something that can be easily resolved.

	The problem is that there is only one set of Mailman processes 
which is handling all the various different lists, so everything has 
to be uniform when it comes to things like group ids.

	You might be able to install multiple instances of Mailman, each 
operating on a different virtual domain, but that's going to get 
messy to configure in your web server, your mail server, your startup 
scripts, etc....

	It should be do-able, but it's not going to be easy.
