A while back I did a bad thing.  I tried to subscribe ~200k addresses
to a mailing list.  I ran add_members for about 24 hours and ended up
only subscribing ~39k members, so there's no question mass subscribing
a huge list is SLOOOOWW.

The reason this was a bad thing was because I was randomly generating
the (bogus) addresses.  I know the welcome message was being sent out
for them all 'cause our postmaster saw every single one of those
bounces ;-}  It was an accident, I swear!  I meant to turn off sending 
the welcome message...

Yeah, we're still on speaking terms, but I had to help him upgrade
from Mailman v 1.0b2 :-)
