Thanks for the reference.

I see your point.  Perhaps I can approach this from a different angle.
It would be easy for me to authenticate the owner against our LDAP.  I
just have to tie the LDAP account to the list, and I can do that by
email address.  And of course I need to make it clear to the owner
that they are using their local UNH account credentials, not their
Mailman credentials.  This seems doable given the tools I have on hand
and members.c program as a launching pad.

Once again, thanks for your help!
