At FrOScon I attended a talk by the (sole) developer of the "Project 
Lancelot" [1] mailing list software. One of the more interesting examples 
he gave in his talk was the ability to filter or allow mails based on 
their GPG-validation status. Of course, this probably wouldn't work for a 
project like ours, but it would be nice if users could somehow signal to 
the mailinglist software "mails from this subscriber are only valid if 
they are signed by this key".
