You can't. If they have enough access to run the command line tools,
they have enough access to do almost anything to the Mailman installation.

Mailman doesn't actually separate anything by virtual host. All the
lists data are in the same file system hierarchy. Virtual hosts are just
a way of controlling which lists are shown on admin and listinfo
overviews and in the Postfix case at least, generating appropriate
virtual alias mappings.
