[Mailman-Users] administrator vs. moderator notification

It seems that the following problem hasn't been discussed on this list
in the last few months (at least I couldn't find a hint in the mailing
list archive).

I, as an administrator, would like to *not* receive immediate
notifications emails (but daily digests only), while the moderator
should do so.

Reason for this behaviour is that one of my moderators is a robot
which handles notifications of spam emails immediately and removes
them accordingly.

Unfortunately, in version 2.1.5 (and in newer versions too, I believe)
this is not configurable separately :-( It's only possible to switch
on and off notification for both moderators and administrators at the
same time.

I would like to have two levels of notification options.

  1a. Default settings for administrators.
  1b. Default settings and moderators.

  2a. Personal settings for administrators.
  2b. Personal settings for moderators.

To continue the above situation, I would like to make only the robot
receive immediate notifications, while moderators and administrators
get daily digests only -- this assumes that those digests get
generated right before they are sent so that they don't show up the
accumulated spam mails already removed by the robot.
