So what?  I'm not talking about the basic concept, but about the
user interface and actions needed to accomplish a certain effect.

There's no reason (maybe with the exception of feasibility ;-) why
this unsubscribe/resubscribe action shouldn't be hidden behind a
simple user interface, which could - at the same time - (1) preserve
all the user's settings, and (2) could even give users an option to
automatically perform this operation for all lists under this
mailman instance's control.
