My thought was that you'd have an option to allow non-members to post
to the list after email verification. If verification is via web
page, we can give the poster the option to become a member at the
same time. We probably don't want to do that via mail-back
verification (just because there's no good way to make this optional
in an email message).
Say a non-member poster auto-verified, and chose to join the list at
the same time, then if moderator approval was required for
subscriptions, they'd have to go through that dance in order to
join. But they wouldn't have to do a confirmation dance because
they'd essentially already confirmed their email address.
