Not a bad idea.  The widely used (in Europe at least) Sympa list
manager has built in S/MIME support.  It picks up your S/MIME cert
when you subscribe, incoming mail is encrypted to the list server's
cert, is decrypted and re-encrypted to all of the subscribers' certs.
I don't know anyone who uses this feature but it's been in Sympa for
years and appears to work.  I also don't know what they do about CAs.

Dunno anyone who does this with PGP.  With PGP, is it possible to
encrypt a message for multiple recipients or do you have to do each
copy separately?
