[Mailman-Users] Mailman feature request

First, thanks for all the nice new features.

I have three minor requests for the next round.

1) When displaying the domain name in the listinfo and other web page 
headers, use the value from the preferred domain setting such that it will 
display in upper/lower case instead of all lower case.

2) Now that mailman keeps a name along with the email address (YEA!!!!!), It 
needs to (at least optionally) display the name with the email address in the 
member list.

3) Make requiring a password to unsubscribe optional. I manage a rather large 
list where I have applied the work around of setting up an unsubscribe 
address that runs through a script to add the master password before sending 
the request on to mailman. The problem is that there are too many people out 
there who forward their mail around until they have no idea what email 
address they subscribed from, so I spend half of my day wading through 
messages about failed unsubscribe requests. I can't have these go directly to 
the user because they reveal the master password.

Annother nice, but I am sure very difficult feature, would be a way to 
include the subscribed email address in the outgoin email.

Again, thanks Barry for all you work.
