And to second this part of Carl's e-mail, this is exactly what I'm
doing on my end. I wanted to be able to have the same mailing list
*name* exist across multiple virtual domains. Back in January 2003 I
posted a question about this, and at the time, Barry Warsaw replied with

MM2.1 doesn't lift this restriction, so your best bet is to continue
your current approach. However, there /is/ a semi-supported extension
mechanism that you might be able to use to share one installation to
do it all. See the Mailman/Site.py file for details, although there's
no guarantee this will give you enough of a hook.
So far I haven't seen this change, and to be perfectly honest, I
don't really expect it to either. I can't speak for everyone, but I
think the number of people who have the same type of installation as me
are fairly limited compared to everyone else who runs MM. But then, I
could be wrong.
MM does what it was designed to do. The fact that a few of us have
quirky setups, I don't think is enough to go through a rewrite. :) Just
my two cents.
But to comment on Jay Vaagen's original post, I think separating the
virtual domains across multiple MM installations might be the easier way
to go. I have one server that's is specifically for MM, and it's
hosting 7 different domains, each one with anywhere between 5 to 50
lists on each installation.
