Bug Description

It appears that around version 2.1.2 of Mailman things changed from using 'bulk' to 'list' as the value for the Precedence header in emails sent to the list subscribers, however the moderation emails are still sent with a Precedence of 'bulk'.

Maybe it's not really a bug, but it's an inconsistency which can cause problems when email filters act on the presence of the bulk value.

I thought this was a one-line change in the Mailman.Message.OwnerNotification class, but it turns out lots of owner notices are created using the Mailman.Message.UserNotification class, and I don't want to send all user notices with Precedence: list because at least some are backscatter.

I think I can still do it without trolling the entire code base by checking the recipient address in the UserNotification send() method, but it won't be as quick as I thought.
