Ahh.  That is a different matter, yes.  I must have missed something 
in the original post, because this was not clear to me.

No, Mailman does not have any method (that I know of) for making 
lists "by invitation only".  You can require approval from the 
Moderator(s) or List Owner(s), but as you observed that's not the 
same thing.
