There are obviously two camps to this debate. I think we can stop
discussing the merits of each one.

Now we beg/plead/bribe the mailman developers to add it (an option to
allow non-authenticated unsubscribes (subscribes and changes would still
need to be authenticated, IMO)), or take it upon ourselves to produce a
patch for them.
