[Mailman-Developers] bug? "already subscribed" message for disabled accounts

Mailman 2.1 (which rocks in most respects) gives a message like this:

> An attempt was made to subscribe your address to the mailing list
> foo at bar.org.  You are already subscribed to this mailing list.

I agree with this in general, but it seems that it would be better to
detect the case where the user has deliveries disabled.  I'm sure some
people will find this puzzling: they think they're unsubscribed, but
Mailman says they are.

Perhaps the message should conditionally tell them they have delivery
disabled, and that it can be reenabled through the web interface.
