See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/fIA9> for why you should make
this change in mm_cfg.py, not Defaults.py.

It's a bit more complicated in this case than just adding the above two
lines to mm_cfg.py (although that would suffice for the newlist issue)
because those settings are used in an additional definition in
Defaults.py so you also need


to undo what was done in Defaults.py, and


to redo it with the correct values.
