I was kind of shocked to read this, since I always edit
<listname>.config directly and would find it inconvenient not to do so
(at least it seems this way to me, I have never bothered learning how to
to use the config command). Not all of the entries can be changed in
this way, and there are times when I want to modify the X-headers for
over 40 lists at a time or something like that.
So can Dave or someone else explain what is wrong with direct editing?
I realise that it can help to have Mj parse the command to check its
correctness, but if the manager is confident in the syntax of the
change, what is the danger?
