[Mailman-Users] Integrated creation of mailing lists (automated or via API?)

The company I'm contracting for wishes to create some means to
automatically create mailing lists.

First, they want to interface LDAP such that the list
config/content/membership (whatever) is stored there and then exported
to Mailman.

That would require understanding the various config formats that Mailman
uses, etc.

I'm thinking a couple of ways to do this would be:

- Understand the API spec and perhaps do some system calls (they don't
want to support Python beyond Mailman, though)
- Create some CGI hacks that will create the lists, etc, using the
command line tools (will that scale to large lists?)

I wonder if someone has experience in this area, and how you
accomplished this.
