[Mailman-Users] mass subscription with personalization on

I believe the trick is to use the format of %(fullname)s for the user's
fullname. I don't know if there is a first name variable or not.
If you load the members of the list with the format:
Some Text Here <email-address>
Then "Some Text Here" will be the "fullname" variable. That's why I
would be somewhat surprised to find Mailman parsed it into first and
last name. But it might.
I'll do a little investigating.
