[Mailman-Users] Digest subscription without password

So far I have have got this to work with the -request, but only if I supply
a password.  It wil not work with -subscribe at all for digest mode.  On the
-request, if I supply a password, the user will have the digest bit set.  If
I do not set the password, the digest bit will not be set.

This is not working for me:

>subscribe [$<$PASSWORD$>$] [digest|nodigest] [address=$<$ADDRESS$>$]
>    * Subscribe to this mailing list. Your password must be given to
unsubscribe or change your options, but if you omit >the password, one will
be generated for you. You may be periodically reminded of your password.
>      The next argument may be either: `nodigest' or `digest' (no quotes!).
If you wish to subscribe an address other than the address you sent this
request from, you may specify `address=$<$ADDRESS$>$' (no brackets around
the email address, and no quotes!)

It seems somewhat strange that you can subscribe yourself to a list without
a password, but in order to subscribe to a digest you are required to supply
a password.
What would be the best way around this?
