Interesting problem! I would tackle this by:
 - renaming the newlist command to something like orig.newlist and then
 - writing a script that collects the data necessary for newlist, 
 - feed that data into orig.newlist, 
 - capture the output, and then 
 - run the "imsimta" command for each of the necessary lines.

Basically do just what you said, write a wrapper around the newlist
