Each list subscription is independent. It's something that works for 
some sites, doesn't for others. Switching to a one account per server 
setup would simplify this, and it's on the TODO list somewhere (or at 
least, it's one mine). It also requires seriously re-architecting the 
back end of this.

and the smart ones would ignore them, and only get the password they 
need at the time they need it... (grin)

iwth 2.x, it is. Each subscription to each list is independent of each other.

I'm actually designing a database schema for a subscription system 
for another project; once it's done, the relevant parts can be 
released for use by Mailman.
