Summary: re-confirm memberships

Initial Comment:
I have a suspicion that some of my lists' mails are 
not getting to
their destinations. This could be that some people 
used their job email and
no longer work there, could be that they are on AOL 
or hotmail (which seem
to just silently discard), or could be just people 
that joined up and now
'junk mail or filter' the list because they're either 
to stupid or lazy to
properly unsubscribe.

Bottom line is that I'm paying per emails sent (via 
my quota on DynDNS) and
I want to unsubscribe these dead members.

It would be great if I could push a button in the web 
GUI (or run some
command on the CLI) and mailman would reset every 
members status to
'unconfirmed' (or whatever it is), mail them a link 
to click (with some
crazy code in it like when you join a list), and then 
mark the responders as

Then after some period of time, say a week or so, I 
could then go into the
GUI, click some link and see a list of 
all 'unconfirmed' people with the
option to unsubscribe them all (without sending an 
email obviously, since
the address is bogus).

Extra points if I can schedule this task to occur 
every month, every six
months, once a year, etc... (probably some 'day' 
interval would be
sufficient here).
