Would it be possible to have a list-level variable that toggled the whole set
of user-level options on and off, with a strong warning in the docs that this
shouldn't be used unless you know what you're doing?
Speaking for myself, I agree with Jason - the end user can munge the message
any way they want from the time it hits their mail server. I suspect that
having a good set of defaults on a list would go a long way towards getting
the results you're looking for.
But, on the other hand, some people like to be a BListOwnerFH. <shrug>
