Yes, I was saying Koops could be easily used to manage newsletters  
independent of the wiki.  It would be easy to insert the koops form,  
which is very simple, into a PmWiki skin.

I was not saying Koops would do anything but newsletter management.   
I saw you wanted to manage a newsletter as one of the many features  
you requested, and I know I evaluated Koops and was satisfied that it  
would fill my own requirements.

I can add a newsletter management system as an extension for the  
mysql module I created... but I'm not sure whether that's what you're  
saying or not.  It's also not my primary concern at this particular  
moment since I need to find paying projects.  If you have a budget  
for any of your needs, we can talk.

I want to extend the mysql authorization module to include an  
administrative form.  I can then remake Koops to work with my mysql  
databases.  Koops is GPL2.x and thus it is compatible with PmWiki  
licensing and I can incorporate it directly within a PmWiki module.   
That would take care of newsletter management, paired with member  
management if you're running both my mysql authentication alongside  
the newsletter management module -- I would just make them work  
together.  Double-opt-in from there would be a pretty easy affair, I  
think, since I already have an email verification process for people  
who sign up to the website.
