The only thing I know of the makes this difficult is the manual
subscribing that would need to be handled (ie. I go on vacation, my system
is going to be down for extended period, so I unsubscribe and resubscribe

Would it be possible for the list software to take pgp signed
subscriptions? That way we can have developers able to sub and unsub
at will, and also non-signed subs can be recv only (no posting).

Also, I probably don't need to say it (but it hasn't been so far) that the
-devel archives should still be public.
