	I don't think it's stored within the filesystem per se.  I think 
it's stored in a Python "pickle" which contains the list and user 
configuration.  To know how to parse that, you'd have to read the 
relevant Python code which creates and uses that data structure.

	In that case, you're more likely to get a useful answer if you 
take this matter over to the mailman-developers list.
