are there any plans to allow an administrator to set the List-ID in 
future versions of Mailman?

i would love to see that.
(that is, it would be sufficient for me to be able to set the listid 
(address) part of it)

this is a somewhat unpractical, esp. since (i guess) many people install 
mailman via a package-manager and want to stay up-to-date with respect 
to bug-fixes,...; hacking the (pre-packaged) code is always a nightmare 
in such situations....
however, iirc there was a custom hook support....(?)
