It wouldn't work anyway, because of the way Majordomo updates files (by
creating a new copy of the file, the renaming the old one, then renaming
the new one, then deleting the old one). The first time the link was
actually used, it would be replaced with a modified copy of the file in
question, and from that point on you'd have two separate lists.
I'd say the simplest fix for your particular situation would be a simple hack
in the main command loop to change all instances of "_" to "-".
