I'm not sure how he set it up, but you could just set up a
'subscription form' or whatever that your users fill in that hooks into
a cgi script that just sends off an email to the appropriate mailman
subscribe address. If you subscribe an address via email with mailman,
it will just make up a random password for the user. If your users
don't need to use it ever, they'll never know the difference.
