The script is just a hack, and must be run by the site admin on the
command line.  It's just a way to mass discard a ton of crap.  It works
on file names so it's easy to focus it on a single list.

That's how my Spambayes patch to Mailman works.  It hooks into the
normal approval process.  It'll likely need updating to the latest
versions of Spambayes (which recently underwent an interface upheaval). 
I'd probably be inclined to put this on the feature list for Mailman
