As has been stated, it would be relatively easy to hack on a "change
email address to" box to the per-user mailman options set.
However when the victim has put their new address in, what happens then?
- Does mail just get blindly sent to the new address which
they hopefully typed in right
- Are they effectively unsubscribed until they have received and
a confirmation message?
- Howabout if its a moderator approved subscription process?
In all of these cases the user can lose mail unexpectedly... where as
an explicit unsub/sub (in whatever order you wish - I sub, check its OK
then unsub old) has very specific known behaviour.
