You can provide a link to the options page for each subscriber by  
adding a line to msg_footer like:
Unsubscribe: %(user_optionsurl)s

If you are willing to mail passwords around with each mail, you can do:
Unsubscribe: %(user_optionsurl)s?password=%(user_password)s
which will take them to an options page with an "unsubscribe" button  
and confirmation checkbox.

Or you can provide a "one click" unsubscribe link:
Unsubscribe: %(user_optionsurl)s?password=%(user_password) 
Unfortunately, it gets so long it ends up wrapping in most Email  

Alternatively, you could probably generate a mailto: for the list's - 
request address to create an emailed unsub request.
