So I could use the qmail-users mechanism to tell qmail to change user for
all my lists.  Great.

So, I can either set majordomo to be setuid/setgid and have all my lists
work across all my domains - automatically making new lists, and having
everything work nicely.

Or, I can use qmail-users to add each list and the majordomo so that the
user/group is changed by qmail before delivery.  This doesn't seem to give
me any additional benefit, but rather makes it harder to add lists.

Best wishes
James
