No, but this little shell command will do it:

for f in lists/*/config.db ; do echo $f; bin/dumpdb $f | grep "'owner'"; done

Lesson: dumpdb will tell you *anything* about a list.

Much-better idea, if you control the server: standardize on "listname-owner"
or some such, and manage this with the aliases file.  Aliases are perfect for
this sort of indirection, and then all the owners are in one place.
