[Mailman-Users] modifying mailman's source

I need to call an external script whenever a mailing list's membership changes.  I'd like to pass the name of the modified list to my script.

I've spent some time studying the Mailman source, and I think the file I need to modify is ~mailman/Mailman/MailList.py.  I think the functions that need to be modified are functions ApprovedAddMember, ApprovedDeleteMember, and ChangeMemberAddress.  

Here are the two lines that I'd like to add to the above functions:

        metacmd= '~mailman/scripts/my-script.pl' + ' ' + self

Does this look correct?

I'm using Mailman 2.1.2 in Linux.
