Optional yes please. On a per user basis as well as per list.

I really couldn't care if someone is able to unsubscribe me from the
mailman lists I am on. Other people may care, that's their choice, but
I'd love to not have to receive password notifications or have to do
this to unsubscribe:

    1. Go to list page, ask for password to be emailed to me.
    2. Receive email, go back to page, enter email and be unsubscribed.

This is obviously not a big issue, but it is a big niggle.
