I do that now. I've done that for years -- but it completely 
disconnects the action from the admin web pages mailman has. Rather

Building filters around the MLM is stuff I've done for years. it's 
got its advantages, but it means there are zillions of details to 
keep track of, and places to tweak. And it's hard-to-impossible to

impossible-to-very-impossible to do it for the admins.

It's a great way to do quick hacks. It's a horrible way to build 
sustainable list managers.
