	Yep! They should match, although that depends on how you did setup

	For example, the file ~majordom/lists/foo_list is:

        -rw-rw-r--   1 majordom majordom      44 May 22 18:57 foo_list

	As the majordomo program executes as "majordom", it can write
	to the foo_list to add an subscription address.

	If I set W_UID and W_GID to something different (User: bin, Group: bin,
	for example) majordomo wouldn't be able to add an address to 
	the list foo_list (Bad permissions).
