[Mailman-Users] encrypted passwords/German "Datenschutzgesetz"

in Germany there is a Law that forced any application to store the 
passwords encrypted. In all Mailman-Version i know, there is the 
possibility to get my own password mailed to me. That means that this is 
not the case at the moment.

This makes it unusable for German custumers that respect that law.

I suggest using a one-way encryption like CryptMD5 or such like most 
systems do already.
