User-agent: Wanderlust/2.15.6 (Almost Unreal) SEMI/1.14.6 (Maruoka) FLIM/1.14.9 (Goj┼Ź) APEL/10.7 Emacs/22.2 (i486-pc-linux-gnu) MULE/5.0 (SAKAKI)

I'm not sure, but judging by sr #106481 and the similar case with
Vivek, it seems to me that mailing lists with such names should not be
created at all, warning the user appropriately.

I tried to "implement" this and I'm ashamed to post the "patch"; this
is the first PHP file I edit in my life :(

Please don't laugh too loud...
