Personally, I'd write a scriptlet for bin/withlist to do it.  Should be
just a few lines of Python since withlist takes care of getting
everything set up properly, deals with lock, etc.  

config_list as someone else mentioned is a fine way to go (remember that
its input only needs to contain the variables that you want to change).

The other thing to remember is that there's nothing magical about the
bin scripts that come with Mailman.  They serve as fine examples of how
to interact with Mailman from the command line.  A Python programmer
should have no trouble writing custom scripts to deal with any odd
situation that can't already be handled by withlist or config_list.
