It would be useful to extend the Membership Management page to support

We use mailman to run a number of members-only lists for a professional
society.  The membership database is kept on a separate system, and lists
of current members are produced for the various lists at regular
intervals.  It would be easier for our non-technical office staff to keep
the mailing list memberships in sync with the main database if they could
upload the member list through the Web rather than having to upload the
file with FTP and use sudo and shell commands to do the synching.

We could mass-delete and mass-subscribe, but it would be more convenient
to do it in one step.  Also, for some of the lists, new members should
receive notification that they have been subscribed, but carry-over
members should not get such notification.  The only way to do that with
add_members is to add in two steps or to make two files with members to be
deleted and members to be added, leaving the carry-over members
