I'm not sure I'm ready to deprecate the roster until we can come up with a simple recipe for people to unsubscribe themselves unambiguously via the web.
If you go to VERP (or more correctly, customized email), you can set up the footer of each message to include a URL to take them right ot the unsub page. Or then mimic lyris with a "you are subscribed as" in the footer.
Actually, this 'you are subscribed as' is a good idea anyway. When people subscribe under one address and it goes through a couple of forwarding mailboxes that mung the headers and then dies, it's difficult to tell what the original subscriber name was sometime. This would alleviate that.
I have a list right now that has this problem and I've yet to figure out which subscriber is causing the problem.
