BTW, because config.db is a Python marshal, you can get at the real
objects by doing the following (kind of gross) from $prefix:

% python
>>> import marshal
>>> d = marshal.load(open('lists/mylist/config.db'))

Now `d' is a dictionary which you can poke at to find all kinds of
useful information.

A little less gross is

% python
>>> from Mailman.MailList import MailList
>>> m = MailList('mylist', lock=0)

Now you can access attributes on m that are equivalent to the keys in
d above.
