I'd actually do that with:

   nacho create-list mambo
   nacho set-plugins mambo sub

Which is to say set the subscribe queue to an empty one.  Both ways you 
also have to not run the web interface, or maybe we just need a new 
property of Siesta::List that indicates that only the owner can add members.

I do like the idea of making nacho more gnuish, and certainly I've 
wanted to take it out back and hose it down to remove all the C<shift || 
die "";> crud.  I'd like to replace it with somthing more generic which 
could also output the usage info rather than just "you didn't fill this 

This springs to mind:

  $commands{'create-list} = {
      arguments => \@spec, # some getops config, or something
      action    => sub { my %args = @_; ... },

But I'm hoping that someone else can take that or something similar and 
produce a patch - I don't have much month left and this doesn't seem 
terribly fun.
