Claims to work for 2.1.9 (listinclusion.patch).

My concern with going that route is twofold:

        1. Stability over future upgrades
        2. I know the list-admins, and I do not trust all of them to get
           a two step process right every time.

Would my solution work? What is the result if someone is both in the
membeshp list and on the hold_these_nonmembers list?
