I'd prefer to keep it, as my own experience with mailing lists has been
that the ones without the trailer incur significantly more additional
wasted bandwidth in "Please tell me how to get off this list" messages
from individuals who couldn't be bothered to save the instructions they
were given when they joined the list than we get with the trailer
itself.  Others may feel differently.
