Seeing how you can get subscribers email from list_members and lists they're
subscribed to from list_lists, we'll leave this as nothing but a scripting

Once that's done, you only need get the password for users which can be
gotten from running dumpdb again config.pck of each list and grep -w 
on the email address.
