[Mailman-Users] aliases.py + wrapper script

When I make a new list with the bin/newlist command, I want it to
update the /etc/aliases list and run the newaliases command (use
sendmail as MTA). aliases.py says:

#     - fix this file!  /etc/alias hacking no longer works

# Write a wrapper program w/ root uid that allows the mailman user
# only to update the alias database.

Have anyone done this, and can give me a link to an example wrapper
program. And does the newlist script need any changes in order to make
this work?
