Bear in mind that this "long deprecated behavior" is a great boon to people
running list servers with delegated administration.

If you maintain the central password in a read-only common file that's
linked to all of the LISTNAME.passwd files, you can have an "override"
password that will work no matter what each list owner changes the list's
admin_passwd to.
