Well, you can do anything with withlist, but you have to write the
Python script to do it. There is no Mailman MailList method that
directly supports deleting all members matching a regexp.

It seems to me that the easiest way to do this is to use
bin/find_member which does accept regexps to create a list of members
to be deleted and then use bin/remove_members to process that list.
