This has come up before. See
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/266722> and
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/266247>, the newer of which is
over 12 years old. I'm not sure why it's never been changed. Perhaps
because both of those ask for more, at least implicitly, and the 'more'
parts are not so easy.

Also, the person doing a lot of the maintenance at that time was
Japanese, and the Japanese message catalog translates both Approve and
Accept and even Accepts to the identical Japanese.
