I wrote a routine that is compatible with "withlist" for doing
this.  Save it into rmmember.py.

def rmmember(mlist, addr):
                print 'key: ', mlist.getMemberKey(addr)
        except NotAMember:
                print 'No address matched:', addr

Run "bin/withlist" to see usage on how withlist works.  This
command should remove your member:

% bin/withlist -l -r rmmember mylist  "pgyallay"@keap at fone.net
