This is a Debian packaging issue. If you wish to install Debian's
Mailman package, you'll have to take this up with Debian.
How would I go about completely removing the current, albeit, partial
install of mailman? Is there a way to do any kind of complete removal
other than just searching and deleting (after an apt-get remove)? I am a
bit of a Linux beginner, so I am not entirely sure how the tarball
installations works, but I am betting that is simpler to figure out and
will ask if I need any assistance.
apt-get purge mailman, then delete files in /var/lib/mailman,
/etc/mailman, /usr/lib/mailman, /usr/share/mailman and
/usr/share/doc/mailman (I think that is it). Purge should do all this
for you (especially if you haven't touched any >list config).

Using the Tarball is easy enough, though I always use the Debian
package because I never have any issues with it.
Apt-get remove worked as well as find -name... I was able to remove
everything associated with mailman and use apt-get install mailman,
which on this occasion, worked like a charm.
I am currently experiencing a hiccup at, documentation 6.1.1
(http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/mailman-install/node13.html). I am
not understanding the aliases/aliases.db instructions. I, seemingly,
successfully ran /usr/lib/mailman/bin/genaliases but now, cannot seem to
find any data/aliases file or directory.
