Maybe I can give you a trick.
Generate a list of the members who you want to delete from the list
as the "other user" and dump it to a text file which is readable and
writable for Mailman.

Save this script into your Mailman/bin/ dir as delete.sh:
 if [ -f /tmp/unwanted_members.txt ]; then 
       ~/bin/remove_members -f  /tmp/unwanted_members.txt listname
       rm -rf /tmp/unwanted_members.txt
And run this script from the Mailman's crontab entry. Eg. if you
want to syncronize your memberlist every day 5 am:

  0 5 * * * /home/mailman/bin/delete.sh

That is all.
