No, unfortunately. subscription is a request@ operation, not a
control@-only operation. [The difference between these is minor, and
really just requires additional code to make it so that it can be
specified at control@ time too.]

However, what I'd really like is a library that handled mailing list
subscription with perl bindings (or in perl) which I could easily
interface with the BTS that didn't suck, and then route all messages
through that. However, it appears that such a thing does not exist,
and I haven't had a chance to write it.
