A change in plan - i just glanced at recent traffic on the zope list, and 
there is more garbage than legitimate postings.  Not good.  I intend to 
turn on rejection of non-subscriber-postings immediately for the 
zope at zope.org list, and revisit the decision tuesday, after people have 
had the opportunity to weigh in (and establish whether, eg, gmane posting 
works ok).
