Remember that existing lists get their state unpickled from the
config.db file, so just adding `auto_reject_nonmembers' in the
MailList constructor isn't enough. New lists will pick up that
attribute, but existing lists won't have it.
You have two choices: either you can conditionalize the getting of the
auto_reject_nonmembers attribute with something like:
if getattr(mlist, 'auto_reject_nonmembers', 0):
or you can add it to existing lists via the schema update mechanisms
in version.py. See NewVars() and remember that you'll have to bump
DATA_FILE_VERSION in Version.py.
