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 'confirmed'. 

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
