This doesn't answer your questions, but have you considered giving  
the lists unique names, but doing aliasing so that they look right to  
the users?

For example, if you want to have discussion at example1.com and  
discussion at example2.com,

Mailman could believe that these are

discussion-example1 at example1.com
discussion-example2 at example2.com

(distinct names)

But then you can set up discussion at example1.com to point to  
discussion-example1 at example1.com and ditto for example2.  You users  
use the shorter names to post to the lists, alter other settings like  
the prefix tag to match, and in theory everyone's happy. :)

The reason I mention this:
You may have some reason for wanting true virtual domains and have  
already discarded this idea, but I've found some clever aliasing is a  
good enough solution for a lot of people, and it's a lot easier than  
running multiple installations or using patches.

Also, there's an FAQ entry on this but (in my opinion) it seems like  
it could use an update:


If you found other resources that you found useful, please add them  
to that wiki page!
