There is no standard tool per se for listing only private members. The
'bin/list_members' tool will list all members including private and if
you really want just the private members, you can modify the
list_members script or diff its results with the 'roster' list or the
results of an email 'who'.

There is also a sample of a screen scraping script which can get all
the members via the web admin interface at
<http://starship.python.net/crew/jwt/mailman/#throughtheweb>. This too
could be modified to get just hidden (private) members.
