Well, there's a "List-Unsubscribe" header which your mail client may or
may not understand:
  List-Unsubscribe: <https://mailman.lug.org.uk/mailman/options/scottish>,
        <mailto:scottish-request at mailman.lug.org.uk?subject=unsubscribe>

Probably.  There's no particular reason why the "list-unsubscribe" link
can't be repeated in the message footer.  We'd have to ask the list

That's OK, I wasn't reading it like that.

> For those who wish to unsubscribe:

Or send mail to scottish-request at the appropriate domain with subject
"unsubscribe" (note: do not send mail to the list, but to the
"-request" address).
