It'd make for a very un-web and quite tedious piece
to be honest.  Took 3 days of wrestling with a dumbass
Cobalt Raq config in the time honoured tradition:

    while new_list_server != working
	try random new idea to fix it
	test new config
	curse lots
    leave it the fuck alone forever

The migration plan was my suggestion, but apart from that...
I dunno.  I'm just not sure that sysadmin and listservers
are very 'evolt', but maybe I'm wrong.

Indeedy.  But that's not really my dept...
