I agree 100% as well.
I've replied privately as asked, but I wanted to
share my opinion publicly.
(I cant stop coming out of the closet into the public :)

I use and like majordomo the best, along with
wilma for web based archives.
I run both on '' which I use
for some list hosting and archving.

Majordomo does have some neat fetures,
only subscribers can post, moderation,
auto appending of suffixes.
(Like @bottom: to unsubscribe blah blah )
Also includes moderated subscriptions including
the two stage confirmed subscribe, which I think
is cool.
You can also do neat things like munge the subject
for easy filtering is you want like prefix subjects
with 'FORK>'

Rohit, if you feel inclined, you can look at my setup
on egg.
