[Mailman-Users] "Invite" vs. autoresponders

I've recently discovered that vacation autoresponders will subscribe
recipients to Mailman lists when they get "invited".

This is not good. It makes the feature dangerous if you've promised to not
subscribe anyone without their assent.

Is there any way to avoid this problem, other than not using the feature?
This is yet another reason to move to URLs with unique keys instead of using
passwords. Such a URL could be embedded in the invitation message.
