Create a list 'listname' which doesn't send passwords or notices and
for which new members are moderated by default and
member_moderation_action is discard. This is your whitelist. Then add
@listname to accept_these_nonmembers of the other lists.

Also, see the script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/non_members>.
