1.93 should be better in this regard, although changing over may be a pain.
In the mailing-lists directory will be the following subdirectories:
list - where the mailing list file resides
config - where the config file for the list resides
config/old - where the old config file for the list resides
info - where the info file for the list resides
passwd - where the passwd file for the list resides
This way if the list name if blurbleganger (a nice 13 character name)
the entire list name can be used. It also makes things easier for me
from the point of scanning for different lists (fewer files to walk
through) and makes it easier to check the update times on files for
caching the majordomo config files to improve speed.
