bin/withlist is the admin tool that's designed to help with tasks such
as this. As far as I know, there's no tool or script in the standard
Mailman distribution that can do this more easily than withlist. The
script I included in my original reply could be simplified even
further by taking advantage of the fact that we know mm_cfg.Digests is
equal 0.

This gives the following for the whole process:

$ bin/withlist -l listname
Loading list listname (locked)
The variable `m' is the listname MailList instance
>>> for member in m.getDigestMemberKeys():
...     m.setMemberOption(member, 0, 0)
>>> m.Save()
Unlocking (but not saving) list: mailman
