    What chances are those?

    I suspect a vger based ARM list would not require you to "run" it.

    Perhaps you overestimate the value of the arm subscriber database
    as well as the work involved to subscribe to a list.

    Adding a "click this to subscribe to the new list" to the mailing
    list trailer would work reasonably well.

    Perhaps not using the gas boiler is another option.
