Additionally, various responses from subscribe and handle_opts use

print doc.Format(bgcolor="#ffffff")

even when they are using a template (in 1.0b8 anyway). Just grep for

Actually the whole web page output/template interface in the cgi
scripts looks pretty easy to play with so I might chase up the
stragglers that need there own templates in my copious free time.

I've got some wrapper scripts that run on the web machine and use ssh
to execute the actual cgi programs on the machine with mailman on
it. They run pretty seamlessly, such that partylist at kaos.co.nz is
