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
