Summary: 'Announcement-only' (read only) list

Initial Comment:
Documents say that Mailman "supports a wide range of
mailing list types, such as general discussion lists and
announce-only lists".  It's exactly true.  But some people 
wish really "announcement-only" feature.

By `Announcement-only' feature:
o Posting by e-mail is not allowed at all.  All messages
  to posting address are forwarded to owners and no other 
  users won't receive it.
o Web interface is provided so that only specified users
  ("posters") can post messages to list.

For example for `mail magazine' publishers,
`announcement-only' list is safer (Oooops! I've
approved the SPAM!) and let them be free from
moderation tasks.

Changes on codes:
o New CGI script `post'.
o New handler `Posttop' which switches messages bound to 
  list to owners (only on annnouncement-only list).
o New `announcement_only' configuration directive.
o Some modifications of templates.


Notice: By now this is buggie (both in Python and English).
    Comments and Fixes are welcome.
