It's neither my nor your business to decide whether or not the  
subscriber list _should_ be open for the public.

Note, however, that this discussion is idle anyway: Checking the  
manual (which I admittedly didn't do before on this), one notes that 
ezmlm (the list management software used) just does not support the  
open "who" feature.  The subscribers' list is _at_ _most_ available  
to remote administrators (which is the case with this list), for  
privacy reasons.

Working around this technical limitation is easy, since Vittorio and 
(if I recall this correctly) Izumi have remote administrator access 
to the list, so they can easily check the subscribers' list, and 
even make it available upon request.
