I believe that Mark has already said that this patch (or something
very much like it) will be added to the official Mailman code in the
near future, so I would think that the only problem might be that
it's not incorporated in the very next version and that you might
have to re-apply the patch when you upgrade.

Let's go back to that:

As far as this goes, it does seem like it should work.

The world should not end, and Mailman should not crash.

You should be able to have a master list of "everyone", but I
couldn't tell you which takes precedence. You'd need to hear from
Mark, Tokio, or Barry on that.
