You may also want to hack a special version of mailpasswds that skips 
the checks for disabling password reminders (on by-list and 
by-user-subscription basis) if you want the mail to go to ALL 
subscribers.  (Or assume they have disabled the reminders for a reason 
and are clever enough to use the password reminder button when the time 
comes for them to need it.)
