If what you have is actually a config.db Python Marshal, all you have
to do is create the directory lists/<listname>/ in the new
installation and put the config.db file in it and access the
<listname> list in the admin interface, and the file will be converted
to a new config.pck.

If what you have is actually a listing produced by bin/dumpdb, you
might be able to use it as input to bin/config_list, maybe with a
little editing.
