See <https://www.msapiro.net/scripts/erase>, mirrored at
<https://fog.ccsf.edu/~msapiro/scripts/erase>, described as:

    Remove an address or all addresses matching a regexp from the
installation. I.e. for every list, if the address is a member, it is
removed. If there are any held posts or (un)subscription requests from
the address, they are removed too. Optionally, any subscription requests
from the address waiting user confirmation are also removed.
