Thanks for the pointers, though.

With the "withlist" term, I was able to make a search in the archives that
did locate the sort of thing I was looking for, and I set about making a
python version of the scripts that people had made.
When I tried it, however, I found that the attributes it was looking for
are no longer part of the list config information... (I'm using 2.1b5)
I'd based my python code on bin/fix_url.py, which changes a different, but
important-sounding attribute (web_page_url). So I checked that attribute
and found it was wrong on the lists I was having trouble with.
To cut a long story short, I then used fix_url.py to trivially fix my
wonky lists, all of which seem fine now. For reference, the command line I
bin/withlist -l -r fix_url tuesdays -v
Where "tuesdays" is the name of one of my lists. It printed (with the -v
option) a record of what it was changing, and sure enough the changes were
present on the web-pages immediately.
If you know where to look.... :)
