There are easier ways to go.  If .../lists/<listname>/config.db
exists its a moderately safe bet that a Mailman list "listname"
exists and that therefore all the matching addresses also (should)
exist with appropriate rewrites.  Many use exactly this algorithm
under various MTAs to run without any list specific alias files.
