I would like to register a "+1" towards at least the beginnings of proper,
multiple-domain support.  No need at all for this to be the whole thing,
but at least its basic foundations.  Even just a hidden "own-risk"
installation option of having the listnames (and references to them)
internally stored and processed as "listname at domain-X.com" would help.

What worries me about the "fixed in the Mailman 3 dev branch" is the
timescale.  You mention both that "2.1 is (shockingly) 4.5 years old", and
that there is "no ETA for Mailman 3.0".

So with such a basic, minimal foundation (for true multiple domains) in
place, then those of us who would really like it a.s.a.p. in our service
environments (i.e. not Mailman 3) would be able to contribute to building
it, perhaps as a subproject (analogous to those you mention for
"SQAlchemy/Elixir", archiver, "web u/i", etc.).

Anyway, thanks for your work over the years,and now on Mailman.  It is
much appreciated!
