I would expect that this could be easily managed by slightly modifying 
your database program to add and delete mailman list members by
itself.  You'd need to write a script for this purpose... I don't know 
mailman internals, but generically, if you can create a script that
can "post" to a URL, you could create a script that could post updates 
to mailman lists.

Of course, if you got really fancy, you'd link into the mailman API
