Heh, yes, that's exactly what I had expected to find.  I made the classic
rookie error of expecting the man page to be up to date.  The version
installed on my system includes only these options in man list_member:

       -o file, --output file
              Write output to specified file instead of standard out.

       -r, --regular
              Print just the regular (non-digest) members.

       -d, --digest
              Print just the digest members.

       -p, --preserve
              Output  member  addresses case preserved the way they were added
              to the list.  Otherwise, addresses are printed in all lowercase.

       -h, --help
              Print a small help text and exit

Thanks for the reminder that documentation usually trails embedded help by
some substantial delta.
