1) you can have this today with a patch of mine on Sourceforge.
2) it's almost-certainly coming in 2.1 with I18N support.

You don't need a Python script; just take the email to listname-off
and format up another email:

To: '<list>-request@<host.domain>'
Subject: "unsubscribe <list-password> <address>" or 
Subject: "unsubscribe <site-password> <address>"

That should do it.
