I have decided that we'll try running the list that way and see how
we like it:

Non-member postings are now rejected, requiring that the user join to
be able to post.  The welcome message now mentions that it is easy to
toggle the reception of list-email off & on, so hopefully people who
want to be able to post but don't want to be subscribed will not have
difficulty tweaking their options appropriately.
