Im using postfix, and getting it to op on separate IPs is trivial.  My 
problem is that Mailman has a single IP to reach for all of the lists.  
How would separate mailman runs interact? I dont believe they will.  If 
they will I dont (cant imagine) HOW to get them to operate seamlessly like 

To put this a different way:  on IP ...1 you have lists.xyz.com
At that url you see that there are lists a-f on that server.  this is all 
running in whaever IP that original URL was on (...1 in this case).  If I 
subscribe to list f (using the web interface on .1) I want list F to go 
out on IP ...6  This seems tricky if not impossible to me.
