My half-formed notion was that nacho could output a fully-formed 
aliases file for all configured lists, which you then include somehow.

The exim configuration magic is cool and all, but I don't want to do 
anything more complex than alias files for the moment, since they're 
everywhere, and fit in my brain.

VERP?  Assume that I'm an RFC-ignorant lazy programmer who just got 
impatient at people half-planning but never implementing MLMs :)
