I'm done with this tool.  It also sends a rejected email to the user informing them that they
are not allowed to subscribe.  Things I need in this email are:

URL of a web page describing out to add an alias to an account
URL of a web page describing mailing list membership policies

If these don't exist I am happy to write them.

A bunch of the Python utilities that I'm using are from LinkedIn and I'm in the process of
"vetting" the code.  I'll check it in as soon as that's done:

I'm now going to replace the mentors' names in podling.xml with their usernames and fix the
corresponding web/reporting generation bits.  Any pointers would be welcome.
