You can do this with a bin/withlist script or by running
bin/config_list over all lists in a shell script with input containing
just the new footer.

There's lots of discussion of both methods in the archives of this
list. See
for one example of scripting config_list.

Don't edit Defaults.py.  Override what you want to change in mm_cfg.py.
