I think that as long as subscribe_policy includes confirm, the
subscribee will always receive a confirm e-mail from a subscribe (or
join) e-mail command.

This is at least in part because it's so easy to send a subscribe
command for someone else. I've looked at the code, and I don't see
that Approved: headers are handled in e-mail command processing. It's
generally assumed that the list admin will use the web interface.
