If you taught your script the password for each of the lists,
it could add an Approved: header to the messages it crafts.
A cleaner way would be to add a stage early in the pipeline of
handler modules that identified messages from the script (by IP
address in a received header, or a special header that would be
hard to forge) and set 'approved' and 'adminapproved' for the
message. (See Mailman/Handlers/Approve.py and SpamDetect.py
for starting places.)
