Yes, It had a few problems :(

My remark above referred to where in the logical flow of the private.py
module you had put your code. It was not about how a user would arrive
at the page.

Since I had planned to look into this for Mailman 2.2 anyway, I have
made a first cut at implementing this feature. The attached
privatepw.patch.txt contains patches to Mailman/Cgi/private.py and
templates/en/private.html to implement this feature. I have tested
them and they seem OK.

You're on your own for the Turkish version of the private.html template.
