 While not a procmail script, I did write a web page that called the add_members. Apache has the suEXEC wrapper to run scripts called
from a users page as that user, so I created pages under http://servername/~mailman, and protected them as needed with .htaccess
files.   This it not what I wanted, procmail would be much better. It was however, a proof of concept.
