We use the listname.closed a lot. When people fill out our request form for a 
new mailing list, they specify whether they want it open or closed to begin 
with. They are given instructions on how to get the config file and edit it 
and resubmit it to Majordomo, but in the meantime, it's nice to be able to 
start them off with a closed list if necessary simply by touching a 
listname.closed file.
