[Mailman-Users] Line Wrapping - on/off by list.

Folks --

I have a request to change the line-wrapping for Mailman on some 
lists but not others.  Is it possible?

I have looked at the FAQ and list help and found articles 
which make it clear that the line-wrapping can be changed via the 
parameter 'raw' when calling the functions findtext() and maketext() 
in /mailman/Mailman/Utils.py.

It seems to me that setting raw='true' works on ALL lists served, not 
a specific list.  It also seems that it is easily possible to change 
line-wrapping on a language-by-language basis.  Is there a way to 
make this work on a list-by-list basis?  I'm not a python expert, but 
since python is quasi-human-readable, it seems to me that I should be 
able to specify which list(s) I want to wrap and which ones not.

Any ideas on how to go about doing that?
