Restricting psoting to subscribers might be a good idea for a start.

It's not so difficult (recently I was moving several lists and upgrading
Mailman from 2.0.x t0 2.1.x) and there are few patches which integrates
Mailman with htdig search engine - conf files are automatically created and
archives are regularly updated via cron jobs. Simple & efficient.

At the moment, I prefer to stay with the one list only, until darcs becomes 
more mature and gets more users.
