Apparently the main exception to this is where you're running multiple
lists with similar names, such as when creating lists for multiple
languages (e.g. announce at example.com, announce at it.example.com,
announce at jp.example.com, etc.).  This is the problem the Document
Foundation found itself with and they opted for mlmmj (with the
exception of one list which does use Mailman), but it has other issues
and I definitely wouldn't want to see NANOG go down that path.  Since
NANOG doesn't need to deal with the similar names/multilingual
problem, that shouldn't be an issue.
