I am not asking for nor suggesting any changes but it might be easier for Ulf (if he is doing the mods) to use a bit mask.
Have the admin notify option use the following bits for differentiating between the subscribes and unsubscribes:
0x00: no notifications
0x01: notify subscribes
0x10: notify unsubscribes
0x11: notify both
In the code instead of looking for a yes/no/true/false, look for the appropriate bit.
Just my take (FWIW),

Mailman already has too many settings and options. I don't think it is
a good idea to add more, unless there is a clear demand.

I think (no evidence - just a guess) that as many people would think
this should be one option as would think it should be two.

You are of course welcome to submit an RFE, but unless there is a
large, positive response, you probably won't see it implemented.
