The Systers have a similar requirement (not all that similar
semantically - they want their new members to write an essay
describing themselves that gets posted to a website or something like
that - but the implementation is probably similar).  They have a fork
of Mailman 2 that implements this feature, among others.

Try writing to systers-dev at systers.org, and tell them I sent you.
