Naaaaah.  Set up an alias for the list name and you never have to worry
about -l again.

But, now that you have brought up the business of the list's name, I'd 
like to see it changed to something like satsee rather than seesat. 
Seesat is clever, don't get me wrong, but wasn't there an U.S. satellite
by that name that was launched around 1978? When I first saw this list's
name I thought it was a historical satelitte group focusing on that radar
technology satellite. It was a little confusing. It's probably too late to
make any sort of name change, but since you brought up the subject Robert,
I thought I'd put in my 2c worth.
