[Mailman-Users] Mod to list_members to show nomail, digest types

Hey gang,

A while back someone requested a way to get the listing of nomail list members.  I recently needed not
only that, but also the ability to sort out digest mime users, and digest plain text users.
Below is a replacement list_members program (that goes in $prefix/bin) that adds four new commands 
with which to accomplish this:

  -x = exclude nomail members
  -n = list only nomail members
  -m = list digest mime members
  -l = list plain text digest members

This script was modified from the 2.0.6 Mailman code - NOT tested with 2.1!!!  Enjoy!

"""List all the members of a mailing list.

Usage: %(program)s [-o file] [-r] [-d] [-p] [-h] listname


    -o file or --output file
        Write output to specified file instead of standard out.

    -r or --regular
        Print just the regular (non-digest) members.

    -d or --digest
        Print just the digest members.

    -x or --exclude
        Exclude all nomail members from list
    -n or --nomail
        Print only the nomail members

    -l or --plain
        Print only plain text digest members

    -m or --mime
        Print only mime digest members

    -p or --preserve
        Output member addresses case preserved the way they were added to the
        list.  Otherwise, addresses are printed in all lowercase.

    -h or --help
        Print this help message and exit.

    listname is the name of the mailing list to use.

Note that if neither -r or -d is supplied, both regular members are printed
first, followed by digest members, but no indication is given as to address
