Kinda miserly of it, isn't it?<wink>

This really ought to be fixed.  I don't know if the templates are even
stored in there (I thought they were on the file system somewhere) but
there are a number of other things that would be nice to have a better
interface than "bin/with_list" for, like recording/setting the list's
pipeline.  But config_list knows only about a subset of configuration

Maybe I can work on it later this week.

"bin/with_list" will allow you to get and set those attributes if you
know what the attribute is in the pickle.

Unfortunately my python is rusty or I'd give you a wrapper, but it
shouldn't be too hard to get bin/with_list to spit out the value you
want on stdout and pipe it to another instance of bin/with_list to
write to the target list.
