I've always wondered why the majordomo authors don't take a leaf out of
smartlist's book.

Smartlist intercepts subscribe & unsubscribe requests sent to the list
It also allows you to use "join" and "leave" rather than "subscribe" and
"unsubscribe", which are easier to type.

I think putting unsubscribe information at the bottom of each message is
just a waste of bandwidth though, because in my opinion nobody ever reads
those, just like they never read the original message they received when
they first subscribed.
