	The easiest way to do this is to do some simple shell scripting 
on the server.  List all the existing subscriptions, modify them as 
appropriate, then delete the old ones and add the new ones.

for information on the command-line programs you'll need to run.

	I'm not personally aware of anyone that has done anything like 
this, but I would not be at all surprised if this wheel has been 
re-invented several times.  You should try looking at the patches on 
SourceForge to see if anyone else has uploaded some utilities to do 
this sort of stuff.
