Anyone considered RFC2369 (with the catchy title of "The Use of URLs as 
Meta-Syntax for Core Mail List Commands and their Transport through 
Message Header Fields") and whether Mailman should support it.

In brief this is a batch of headers for list mail which define URLs to 
do list management.  Theoretically an MUA should use these to give a 
user an interface to hack a list - ie sub/unsub get info on archives 
Currently this is probably in a chicken and egg situation - MLMs don't 
support it so MUAs don't either...   Exmh does support it (first place 
I'd seen mention of it).

It doesn't seem like that great a system to me :-)
