I suppose it's possible, and certainly it was a misconfiguration on my
part to _not_ have an add_virtualhost call for "www.fmp.com". The
web_page_url in effect, though, seems to have been the one set with 
--urlhost when newlist was invoked to create the list, and after
running https.py the absence of an appropriate add_virtualhost() came
to the fore and the web_page_url was rewritten using the old
DEFAULT_URL_HOST, even though I'd added a proper add_virtualhost() by
the time I ran https.py.

Interesting, but not serious since the issue was identified and
remedied in pretty short order :)
