Though feasible, such an enhancement would not work out well in practice,
I think. The better solution would be what some listservs already do,
i.e. require a reply from the applicant with a certain keyvalue in
the reply, before putting him/her on the list. And this is probably
what SmartList will be supporting (after I'm done with my exams :-).
