I have never done this because I don't have PHBs asking (telling) me to
do nonsense.

You can change the list-bounces address to list-mails or anything else
you want. This involves either changing the list methods
getListAddress() and GetBouncesEmail() in Mailman/MailList.py and
maybe the function get_site_email() in Mailman/Utils.py or some other
way of accomplishing the same thing, and changing list aliases or
whatever your MTA uses to deliver to Mailman to deliver list-mails
mail to the wrapper with arguments 'bounces list'.

Since I've never done it, I don't know if the above is a complete list
or not.
