I really like mailman expecially comparing to majordomo, although its
web interface looks as from late 90s.
But mailamn has no command line utility to add to the "list of non-member
addresses whose postings should be automatically accepted".
I have to go to the admin panel (several clicks), enter password,
then click 2 times, paste an address, and click 2 times again.
With command line utility I would go to the server, press Control-R,
"non", maybe Control-R again, enter, paste an address, enter. Done.
BTW, it would be nice if some Python programmer will write "add_non_member"
script by analogy with "add_members" script.

for seldom and non-repeating tasks like browsing (and adding itself to
a mailing list) it's better to use GUI, however, for routine operations
(like adding news address by administrator) it's better to use the command
