The following won't work for (un)subscription because the notice to the
admin doesn't contain the confirm message/token.

And the above won't work either. The file contents need to be
from Mailman.Utils import sha_new
post_password = sha_new('desired_pw_value').hexdigest()
I forgot that config_list won't do the encryption. Also, the 'del
sha_new' line isn't mandatory, but omitting it will result in an
'attribute "sha_new" ignored' warning from config_list.
