[Mailman-Users] Are edits to data/aliases preserved

I'm using mailman with postfix.  Mailman creates and modifies the file


which is (indirectly) used by postfix for the aliases that mailman uses.

I would like to edit some of the content of that file by hand, in  
particularly I want bounces to both be processed by mailman and sent  
to the list owner.  So I'd like to change the line

spirit-bounces:     "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman bounces spirit"


spirit-bounces:     "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman bounces  
spirit", spirit-owner

Will such an edit survive any future mailman additions to data/ 
aliases?  Also, is there some other/better way of achieving what I  
want to achieve (seeing all bounces and having mailman process them
