Sure.  Let's assume the Mailman package is on your sys.path and that
you can import the Mailman.MailList module.  Essentially, all you need
to do is create a MailList instance with zero arguments and then call
.Create() on that instance.

See bin/newlist for a good example; it essentially just wraps a bunch
of command line processing around MailList.Create().
