If you edit them directly, you run the risk that you made a mistake and
Mj will abort the next time it tries to parse the list config file. If
you mail them then Mj validates it before updating the file. Even with
updating via config/newconfig, there's always a window when only the
last changes are applied. The cheap solution is to agree that only one
person is allowed to update each list config file.
