Steve is correct, but in Mailman 2.1.19 for which the first candidate
has been released last week, there is a new Privacy options... ->
Subscription rules -> subscribe_auto_approval feature that allows
providing email addresses and ^regexps matching email addresses that are
exempt from admin approval when subscribing. It would not be hard to
extend this feature to accept the @listname syntax as well.

I will consider doing this for the 2.1.19 final release, but at a
minimum, I'd have to add a new i18n string or change the ones I added
with this feature, and I'd like to consider i18n frozen for 2.1.19 at
this point. (deep sigh ...)
