Yes - I've thought about this a bit. But the thing to remember in this 
particular case is that outgoing mailings are handled by ezmlm.  
Mailhandler sends a single email to the list and the ezmlm takes over.  
This doesn't directly address the larger issue you raise - but it does 
remove the responsiblity for the mail details to a proven tool that 
scales fairly well.  We've introduced, at least conceptually, a 
separation between the mail and the mailhandler - it should be trivial 
to have the mail handled in different ways. (as long as the underlying 
mechanism supports subscribe, unsubscribe, and is a member of type commands.
