Can you point to a good one ?

I've hacked this as follows : in /etc/aliases, add

list-on: "|formail -I'Subject: subscribe'|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd list"
list-off: "|formail -I'Subject: unsubscribe'|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd list"

patching bin/newlist to do this is straightforward

Thanks for your text. I think you might consider this one also : when a
message needs moderation, having the server send a copy of the message to
the admins would be o so great. They could either correct what's wrong (a
silly attachment) and "bounce" the message back to the list, or go to the
admin page to approve/discard it.
