Summary: Feature Request: Admin change subscriber's e-mail

Initial Comment:
I would like to be able to go into Membership
Management and be able to change a subscriber's e-mail
address without sending a confirmation to the user. 
I'd rather not have to unsubscribe and resubscribe them
with a different e-mail address.

In my case, I'm taking an old listproc list and moving
the user list wholesale into mailman, and then cleaning
up the resulting mess.

I have some implementation questions.

The simplest way to do this is to check in the options page processing for
authorization by list or site admin and if so, skip the confirmation of an
address change. However, this is a substantive change of behavior and could
be a big surprise for an admin who expected the change to require
confirmation. So is this change in behavior acceptable?

If not, what shoud the UI look like for an address change? Should it still
be on the options page with a note for admins only that it won't be
confirmed or a check box for admins only to bypass confirmation, or should
it be a new function in membership management?

Yes, please. If the administrator can add someone without their
confirmation, why is a confirmation required for an address change?
