You can add any list attributes you want. The quick and dirty way to do
it is to modify Moderate.py to check if
mlist.accept_these_special_posters exists and if so, do what you want.
Then you can maintain the accept_these_special_posters attribute for a
list with bin/withlist or bin/config_list.

The right way to do it is to also modify MailList.py to create the
accept_these_special_posters attribute for new lists with either an
empty value or a Defaults.py setting (empty would be appropriate for
this), modify Version.py to increment DATA_FILE_VERSION, modify
versions.py to add the default accept_these_special_posters attribute
to old lists that don't have it (based on DATA_FILE_VERSION), and
modify Gui/Privacy.py to add the attribute and help for it so you can
maintain it from the GUI.
