Sorry, I guess I stuttered or something.

One can send email to unsubscribe.  That email's format is documented in the
help message text for every list.  The email's format is:

To: <list>-request@<host.domain>
Subject: unsubscribe <password> <address>

So you need to create such an email and send it.  The time at which you need to 
create such an email and send it is when an email is sent to listname-off
(or whatever you create as the unsubscribe alias).
