Summary: Make confirm links in email optional

Initial Comment:
An organization which attempts to train its members or employees (or 
otherwise-involved critters) never to click on links in email messages 
should not itself send out messages containing links with suggestions to 
click them.

In today's malware world, such an organization is acting sensibly.

In the present mailman, the goal can be achieved by adjusting message 
templates.

It would seem better--despite the desire not to have options proliferate 
endlessly--to provide an option in the list configuration to disable such 
links.  (That would probably not include disabling the RFC list headers, 
which can already be disabled separately.)
