	Um, this is QUITE easy to do with the add_members program:

    add_members [-n <file>] [-d <file>] [-c <y|n>] [-w <y|n>] [-h] listname


    --non-digest-members-file <file>
    -n <file>
        A file containing addresses of the members to be added, one
        address per line.  This list of people become non-digest
        members.  If <file> is `-', read addresses from stdin.

    --digest-members-file <file>
    -d <file>
        Similar to above, but these people become digest members.

    -c <y|n> 
        set whether or not to send the list members the `there's going to be
        big changes to your list' message. defaults to no.

    -w <y|n>
        set whether or not to send the list members a welcome message,
        overriding whatever the list's `send_welcome_msg' setting is.

        Print this help message and exit.

        The name of the Mailman list you are adding members to.  It must
        already exist.

You must supply at least one of -n and -d options.  At most one of the
files can be `-'.
