I believe the site admin can set the admin password of any list at any
time using the www interface, entering the site password in the "old
password" box.

However, I agree that a command line interface to more aspects of
Mailman would be useful to site admins.  If you know python, such
command line tools should not be very hard to write yourself, though.
