You can modify the configuration at the command line by taking advantage of
the bin/withlist tool:

(open the list configuration database with locking, change it, save it,
and unlock it)

$ python -i bin/withlist -l my-list
>>> print m.subject_prefix
>>> m.subject_prefix = "[My-list] "
>>> m.Save()
>>> m.Unlock()
>>> EOF (Ctrl-D for Unix)

Alternatively, if you need to do this to a lot of lists, Utils.map_maillists
can be used to apply a function of your own devising across your lists.
