When I was managing a Mailman installation, we decided early on to
ignore passwords.  I had many lists where the subscriber base was
taken from our Human Resources Database, and the lists were updated
at least once per day.  We decided that subscribers did not need to know
their list password, and if they did need it, they could go to the list
web page and have it sent to them via e-mail.
