It does. Use the -w option.

This stuff is really easy to find out about. Just trying running the
command with an option of '--help' . If the command doesn't recognise
the option it will usually complain and stop working so no damage done
there. However if the command (and I'm talking generally about unixy
sort of commands, not just Mailman in particular).. If the command does
recognise the '--help' option it wil... give you help!

The '-h' option is usually good for this as well. If you're really
tetchy about supplying unknown options to random binaries then do the
operation as a standard or restricted user. Then you minimise the
potential for any damage you might do.

Simples! :)
