Yes.  (Despite what Dave Barr said.)  However, you have to
twiddle the sample-alias handling of the digest.  This does lose
you the protection of having resend check for admin requests
along the way, though.  For that reason, I recommend doing what
Dave said anyway, which is to have a closed and unadvertised list
to which the digest is attached.

If you really want to have an 'pure' digest, though, here's some
sample aliases (untested, but derived from an existing setup):

owner-snork-digest: snork-sender,
snork-digest-approval: snork-sender
owner-snork-digest-approval: snork-sender
#owner-snork-digest-outgoing: owner-snork-digest
snork-digest-request: |"/local/src/majordomo-1.93/wrapper request-answer snork-digest"
owner-snork-digest-request: snork-sender
snork-digest-owner: snork-sender
snork-digester: |"/local/src/majordomo-1.93/wrapper digester -r -C -l snork-digest snork-digest-outgoing"
snork-digest-outgoing: :include:/local/share/mail/lists/snork-digest
snork-sender: :include:/local/share/mail/lists/snork.owner
owner-snork-sender: snork-sender
