[Mailman-Users] bulk deletion of pending requests

I've kept this little bit of python handy for cleaning out posts
in moderated lists that end up with too many posts to handle manually.

This is no longer working for me.  No idea when it stopped working
since it is not used very often. When I run it I get

$ python -i `pwd`/bin/withlist -l faucettalk
Loading list: faucettalk (locked)
>>> m.requests={}
>>> m.Save()
Unlocking (but not saving) list: faucettalk

What am I doing wrong?
