on a different but related tact, what could I alter in the cron script to send
out a 'reminder' that the user belongs to the list, but not actually send the
password?  IT Security is a little antsy about having these passwords floating
around through the email system (don't ask).

If the list's send_reminders is set to No, no periodic reminders are
sent for that list regardless of the user's setting on the user
options page.

If the user clicks the "Remind" button on the options login page (after
providing her email address), she will get a one-time reminder
regardless of any other settings.
