Summary: Web interface to sync_members

Initial Comment:
It would be useful to extend the Membership Management
page to support sync_members.

We use mailman to run a number of members-only lists
for a professional society.  The membership database is
kept on a separate system, and lists of current members
are produced for the various lists at regular
intervals.  It would be easier for our non-technical
office staff to keep the mailing list memberships in
sync with the main database if they could upload the
member list through the Web rather than having to
upload the file with FTP and use sudo and shell
commands to do the synching.

We could mass-delete and mass-subscribe, but it would
be more convenient to do it in one step.  Also, for
some of the lists, new members should receive
notification that they have been subscribed, but
carry-over members should not get such notification. 
The only way to do that with add_members is to add in
two steps or to make two files with members to be
deleted and members to be added, leaving the carry-over
members subscribed.

I implemented that feature. How can I upload a patch against 2.1.9?
