Isn't this independent of the fact if password is required on subscription
or not? What I'm saying is not to eliminate the password option all
together, just suggestion that password should not be required if not
supplied and mailman generates the password instead. 

The havoc is control by the list setting that should require confirmation
on subscription which is not dependent on he passwords.
