Unfortunately, not from within Mailman.  I know what you mean though, and
I've been wanting bounces compared the previous month as well.

You could try wrapping the account that receives the bounces with a 
procmail script or somesuch; the script could save a list of bounced
addresses for future comparison.  The hardest part would be the actual
extraction of email addresses, though...

Unless you have a prohibitively large number of bounces, it might be 
easiest to just deal with it by hand for now.
