Copying the config.pck is the way to do this. There is no worry about a
version jump. Mailman on the new server will upgrade the config.pck on
the fly. Any upgrade should be OK.

I don't understand why you say you can't copy the config.pck. If you
have sufficient access to run command line tools, you should have
access to copy the config.pck, and even if you don't, the host admins
may be willing to help.
