[Mailman-Developers] Privacy problems with UserNotification

We are converting a few lists to Mailman 2.1b3 and used add_members with the "-c" flag.
It turns out add_members uses UserNotification to send out the "big changes" message and
UserNotification puts all the recipients into the To: header. As this was for an
"adminstrator only" roster, not a good idea. I have no idea where else this could happen.
If nowhere else, a loop in add_members might be enough.
