It occurred to me recently that this may even have helped cause the problem
that lead to this thread. I don't remember any more what the Majordomo code
does with sub/unsub requests sent to the this, but if it was dropping them
silently, then no-one could possibly have seen the requests, which would
certainly tend to send some people into the stratosphere...
