[Mailman-Developers] PHP Wrappers?

Hello.  How might one configure Mailman (version 2.1.6) list settings
using PHP scripts?  The goal is to configure Mailman list settings such as
domain name of list, non-digest footer, set welcome/goodbye messages, etc.
 An approach that comes to mind is to use bin/config_list.  This would
require writing/reading files and using bin/config_list to process them. 
Is there another recommended or preferred way to accomplish this?

There was a post about "PHP Wrappers" which suggested, "...just use a
setuid mailman wrapper script that does caller-checking to see if it's
called correctly, by the right user, and with 'safe' values"
 This was recommended over simply adding the www user to the mailman group.

I do not completely understand how one creates a setuid mailman wrapper
script.  Is this a matter of creating something similar to mail-wrapper.c?

If someone has written a wrapper script or has some good resources further
explaining this to share and is willing to do so, I would appreciate it. 
Thank you,
