Link between members and mailing lists should use List-ID

Bug Description

The link between users and the mailing lists they are subscribed to is kept in the IMember implementation (and the member table). To allow for separation of database, these are not foreign keys, but instead string references using the fqdn_listname.

However, mailing lists can be renamed, so using the fqdn_listname is wrong. List-ID is a much more stable identifier, so that should be used instead.
