Correct. It only affects unsubscribe by email, but it affects email
unsubscribes for the entire installation.

It would be pretty easy to modify the patch to test some list attribute
(a locally defined one set by withlist) to determine whether or not to
skip the things that the patch deletes.

Also, one could instead patch the ConfirmUnsubscription method in
Mailman/MailList.py if one wanted to skip confirmations of
unsubscribes from all sources (conditionally by list or not).
