De-groovy.  Dee-lite.

All you need to do is set up a cron job or similar to run the script
at 12am Monday.  I didn't do it because I wasn't sure how you wanted
to handle it.

The script should run as the mailman user otherwise I'm guessing that
the file ownership would get munged.  If you run as a different user,
you'll need to add code to fix the ownership and maybe permissions.

The script is called thelist.pl and sits in the mbox directory.
