Option 3.  If I've done it right, then you should be subbed nomail
from that address.  It's as simple as:

Set up the list so people can sub nomail

 % nacho set-plugins siesta-dev Archive SubjectTag ListHeaders Send NoMail

 mysql> update list_plugins set personal = 1 where name = 'NoMail';

Sign someone up and set them nomail

 % nacho add-user-list siesta-dev nick@xxxxxxx.xxx
 % nacho set-plugin-config-userlist NoMail nick@xxxxxxx.xxx siesta-dev nomail 1

Which is to say, it needs to be a chunk simpler, but nacho is icky.

The other way to solve this, is to make the Siesta::User class know
about multiple email addresses per user, and teach
Siesta::List->is_member about that.  I think that's cleaner, and it's
what we've had in mind since the first day, but it's less simple and
doesn't help with stealing mailman users directly with bandito.
