Ok, maybe I'm missing the point here.  couldn't you just allow all 
non-member postings and manually approve subscriptions?  Define the 
address as an alternate name for the list if you really don't want to give 
out the list address.

On one site I administer, we've converted our simple Email forwarder 
public Email address to a mailing list, with the project managers as the 
ownly subscribers.  Apart from the odd bit of fun we have with Reply-to, 
it works pretty well.  It helps to fascilitate discussion between the 
managers and encourages managers to copy everyone else on messages sent 
back to people outside the project.
