For years on my own site, I have used a modified version of add_members
that does only invitation. It also removes some of the add_members
options. I don't recall why I didn't just add a -i/--invite option to
add_members at the time. Probably because this was going to be invoked
by a php script written/maintained by a not completely trusted person.

Anyway, I'll look at adding the option to add_members for the next release.
