I asked Ralph Giles if we could do this; apparently unwritten policy is that
this isn't going to change. Whilst I can change it anyway, I don't want to go
against his explicit decisions. Sorry.

This seems to be a per-user setting, there doesn't seem to be a way to
globally change it, unless I'm missing something. I imagine it's possible for
the user (i.e. you) to log in and change this for yourself. I'm not all that
familiar with mailman's more advanced features, so I could be wrong...
