OK.  It was just a guess anyway.

That's not too difficult.  Basically, you can use the fix_url.py
script as an example of how to create a withlist script to change any
list values you need.  You can also use config_list to export the list
config to a file and then add or edit the value you need and then
re-import it using config_list.
