I've seen it. I think that it's probably on more lists than you realize
-- but since we are already "trained" on sending "unsubscribe <listname>"
to "<server-address>@domain.name", we rarely notice "alternate" methods
of, um, getting ourselves off.
*IF* we even read those parts of the Welcome messages, that is. ;-)
BTW, this is also standard on the Lyris list server, which has been out
for about a year(?) now. Or so. <http://www.lyris.com/>
