bin/dumpdb <list path>/config.pck will give you access to all the
pickled data inside a config, which includes ban_list,
discard_these_nonmembers, and reject_these_nonmembers.

Here's a bash hack using grep, tr, and cut to do it:

PCK=`$DUMPDB $LISTPATH/$1/config.pck | tr "\n" " " | tr -s " "`

{ for i in ban_list discard_these_nonmembers reject_these_nonmembers
    echo $PCK | grep -Eo "'$i': \[[^]]*\]" | cut -d ':' -f 2 | tr -d
"[][' ]" # | tr "," "\n"
done; } | tr "," "\n" | tr -s "\n" | sort | uniq

Put that in a file, e.g. 'script', and run: ./script <listname>.
You'll probably need to fix DUMPDB= and LISTPATH=.

You can wrap this in something like: for i in `list_lists -b` to
automate over all lists.
