Good stuff.  It would be good to also have a small notes field
attached to each subscriber.

I'd like to insert a level in there of:

  -- If message matches <regex...> then auto-post
  -- If message matches <regex...> then hold
  -- If message matches <regex...> then reject

This way we can prefix lists with a procmail recipes (that do
whatever) to externally define posting criteria.
