This generally needs a better solution. "Use bin/config_list" is fine
as a solution for site admins, but isn't useful for list admins -
they're basically stuck until the site admins manually handle each

Perhaps parsing the escaped bits or tag replacement for the text blobs
submitted via the web interface? This isn't a new issue on the web,
other people using python must have found some way of dealing with it.

Or, alternatively, perhaps email commands for updating the various
text blobs? (that has other charset issues, but...)
