yes, all admins can add/remove users but only one or two of them can post.

I think I'll make only one or two real admins and give the other "admins" the
admin password to allow them to subscribe/unsubscribe their users, like this
they won't receive the approval requests.  And I'll list the real admins under
"Addresses of members accepted for posting..." so that they are the only ones
that can post.

To prevent the "admins" from changing the list options, I'll let them access
only the membership management page... or a customized and simplified copy of
this page.
