In essence, Statalist is run using majordomo software 
as a courtesy operation by the Harvard School of Public
Health. I know nothing of the details, but I am 
confident that 

* if more were possible with majordomo 
it would already be in use. 

* no one concerned has any extra time that they 
want to spend running Statalist; Marcello Pagano 
and his colleagues already put in a great deal 
of work, almost all behind the scenes, trouble-shooting
and so forth.
