One thing is moderation, another is to have non-members be able to
post. I think the latter should be allowed by default, because it is
what most people expect anyway. If some list owner wants to change
this, well, mailman has a nice web-based interface they can and should
use. You shouldn't be spending time on such things.

However, I see another small problem:
