Thanks Greg! It's useful information.

Now that we're certain this feature is not available in Mailman (and 
it's still needed), what we are doing is writing a CGI form that 
collects the information from the user when they subscribe, and that 
CGI will then email Mailman to start the subscription. The other 
information I guess we can store in MySQL or similar.

Do you think anybody else would be interested in this? If you think 
they might be, we'd be happy to post this to the Mailman site.
