So to reimplement this, I suggest one of the following ideas:

== Seperate form in new window ==
- a bordered box next to the Email field (a seperate <form
target="_blank">[1]), that is enhanced via javascript.
- This form has a "Subscribe to the release announcements mailing list"
- a label with "Email"
- and a "Subscribe" submit button.
-- When pressed submit to a new window. User sees the result and knows that a
confirmation link send by lists.wikimedia will be waiting in the Inbox.

== Within PHP when pressing next ==
- We use the value of the normal Email-field
- A checkbox that will decide whether or not to subscribe.
- When Continue is pressed on the Name-page, a POST-request is done to the
mailingslist page. The result of it is ignored.

[1] With target="_blank" it submits to a new window. With javascript we may be
able to do it nicer via AJAX. And POST it and use the return to show a message.
However this may be impossible due to cross-domain restrictions. Nonetheless
target="_blank" works fine.
