I will review your patch, and I used list-domain.tld instead of 
list.domain.tld, but I basically came to the same conclusion and just 
implemented same.  I got the idea from 

This really needs to be documented somewhere.

does using a dash vs a dot as a separater make any difference re eventual

lists soon, so now's the time to change anything.
