You can put your own files in mailman/lists/. The only issue is it
precludes later creating a list of the same name. You can also put
your own files in mailman/lists/LISTNAME/ directories without problem.

You can create directories under mailman/lists/ as long as they don't
contain config.pck* or config.db*, and even the standard Exim router
will not be confused.
