[ic] mailman feature request: 1st question always returned

Idea (due to all the FAQ asked on this list):

The first time a new subscribe posts to the list, the post is blocked and 
returned to sender, with the following text:

Before your first post can be sent to the list, you *must* research all the 
following materials to see if you question has been asked and answered before:
1. FAQ http://...
2. Docs (searchable) http://...
3. Mailing list archive (searchable) http://...
Your first post has been returned, if you send it again it will get 
through.  But please check if it is a FAQ.

If mailman has this feature already it would be nice to have turned on.  If 
not, someone should take this to the mailman developers.

Just a thought,
