So by setting the group, to watch the category (your mailing list), you 
essentially force a mailing list behavior.

I think I mentioned before, but just in case, when you set up a category, you 
can set it to allow anyone with an account or only allow people in a group to 
be able to 

Post topics and reply to topics.  So that would emulate the current mailman 
behavior of only mailing list members can post to a mailing list.
