[Mailman-Users] Setting option flag for all users?

I just got mailman 2.1.5 up and running on Debian and only pulled out 
about half of my hair in the process. I had set send_reminders (to send 
the monthly password reminders) in my list admin to NO and then imported 
our 1000 or so users. I have everything up and running perfectly and am 
now shocked to see that all of the imported users have the "Get password 
reminder email for this list?" flag set to YES, which means they will get 
the password reminder anyway, right?

So, is there a way for me to change this setting for all users to NO and 
then give them the option to enable it if they choose to. Totally 
disabling the password reminders isn't an option - I just don't want the 
user to get them unless they change the setting to YES.

I really don't want to change the options manually in the Web interface 
for 1000 usrs. I've narrowed this down to the send_reminders flag in the 
user options, but I'm not sure how to change this flag to 0 for all the 
users. Perhaps a withlist command?
