If the site list is missing, it writes a message to stderr and logs it
to Mailman's 'error' log. If a member doesn't have a password, it logs
that to Mailman's 'error' log.

If any uncaught exceptions occur, it writes a traceback to stderr.

Otherwise, it is silent.

It will not mail any reminders at all for a list if the list's General
Options -> send_reminders is No. It will not mail to a user whose "Get
password reminder email for this list?" option is no.

Otherwise, it will generate the mail and queue it in the virgin queue,
and if VirginRunner, IncomingRunner and OutgoingRunner are all running
and there is no error (logged in Mailman's error log) the mail will be sent.
