I'm not sure I'm ready to deprecate the roster until we can come up
with a simple recipe for people to unsubscribe themselves
unambiguously via the web.  Right now I say:

- Go to the listinfo page for this list

- Click on "Visit Subscriber List"

- Find your address, click on it.

- Click on "Unsubscribe".

Unless they know what address they're subscribed with, anything else
involves a bunch of fumbling.
