Not without changing the code in Mailman/Cgi/admin.py.

The change_pw script was developed primarily to address the change in
stored password format in Mailman 2.1 that required resetting all list
passwords and notifying list owners. Presumably, that's why it has
this feature and the web interface doesn't.
