[Mailman-Users] repurposing the -request alias on an autogenerated aliases file?

Here at work, we've found that mailman's "-request" alias has stomped 
another already-existing function (under our previous list, we used that 
for administrative requests, and on this particular list, that's not 
negotiable -- it needs to duplicate the function of xxx-owner).

However, we're using automatic aliases.  Is there some way to quell or 
suppress the creation (or re-creation) of that particular alias (for one 
list only), without having to go to manual aliases?

That is to say, if I hand-edited both $mailman/data/aliases and aliases.db 
(by rebuilding it from the new aliases file) -- would mailman revert it on 
me the next time I created a list?
