Try something like this:

1. You have a form in a html page to get the email address.
2. It posts to a CGI script that puts the email address in appropriate subscribe messages that get sent to mailman.  You may need to generate a separate email per message - haven't tested this to see
if you can just use multiple lines.

Another way is to use cron jobs running as mailman to check for the presence of a text file that your CGI creates with the email address, then run add_member.  The disadvantage to this method is there
is no verification.
