A less disruptive approach would be just a) switch this list from
anybody-can-post to subscribers-only, at least for the time being, and
then b) put the FAQ pointers about FAST_CWD prominently into the
auto-reply for non-subscribed users. At the very least this would have
the benefit of not breaking the continuity of the mailing list archives.
All this based on two assumptions I cannot vouch for:
1) that ezmlm even has the requisite functionality
2) that totally uncontrolled access to the primry mailing list is not on
someone's list of non-negotiable requirements
