Exactly. I have a simple form and a CGI written in Perl that allows
anyone to send mail as long as they know a password. Unfortunately,
the only way for the entire list to use this is to broadcast the

like is a CGI that would look up the password in Mailman's user DB.
Has anyone done this? If not, I will put on my programming hat and
