[Mailman-Users] Removing some list headers

Hello again - hopefully you won't get too tired of me before I'm done... :)

While reading on 'Umbrella lists', I ran across a tip to remove some of 
the headers:


"2. Edit CookHeaders.py with your favorite editor.

Somewhere around line 116 (in version 2.0 final, at least), you'll see 
where the headers are added.  Simply delete each line.  Be careful not 
to upset the formatting - the indentation is important.

You can safely remove:

  * List-Unsubscribe, List-Subscribe, List-Post, List-ID, List-Help"


All I'm really interested in removing is the Sub, Unsub and Help 
headers, but this refers to v. 2.0 final, and the headers in question 
(that I'm interested in) begin on line # 206 instead of 116, so before I 
do this, I thought I'd ask...

If I wanted to remove these headers do I just comment the following lines?

        'List-Help'       : '<mailto:%s?subject=help>' % requestaddr,
        'List-Unsubscribe': subfieldfmt % (listinfo, requestaddr, 'un'),
        'List-Subscribe'  : subfieldfmt % (listinfo, requestaddr, ''),

Everyone subscribed to these lists are employees, and I do not want them 
to be able to sub/unsub or get help...


Best regards,
