I am sorry if I am being really dense; but what _is_ the administrative email
interface to Mailman?  For example, how _can_ a list administrator unsub
a bunch of listmembers via email?  I cannot for the world of me find any
documentation on this.  

I am in the process of deciding whether to move a fairly large list-hosting
operation from majordomo to Mailman.  Although most of our listowners use
exclusively MajorCool, there are a few -- some with very large lists -- who 
do all their subscription and unsubscription operations via email.  I want to
be able to tell them how they can do this in Mailman, but I haven't been able
to find out.  Yet I see these hope-arousing little hints, such as Brad's above,
that it can be done...
