I moderate a mailman installation at http://www.strategicnetwork.org that
has over 120,000 subscribers to various lists. Here are some functions that
would be nice:'
1) the ability to add a new subscription to a given list without importing a
text file. Right now it seems to be impossible to add a single address to a
single list in the same way you can remove an address. This would be useful
for adding a one-off email address change.
adduser -l /list/thelist johndoe at gmail.com
2) the ability to change an email address en masse in all lists. At least
once or twice a month I have people who write in who want to have their
email address changed and they aren't technically minded enough to do this
on their own. As a customer service issue it would be nice to simply
accomodate them, e.g.
changeuser johndoe at gmail.com johndoe at smith.com

Never retreat. Never surrender. Never cut a deal with a dragon.
No armor? Unclean life? Then do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
