[Mailman-Users] Manipulating membership management flags (e.g., nomail) from the command-line?

I administer a Mailman 2.0.12 server that runs many (>870) mailing
lists, the vast majority are used internally where I work. However, we
have the odd external recipient; more problematically we have a bunch
of internal recipients (e.g., username at bowdoin.edu) that forward their
mail to an external provider like gmail.
A couple of days ago I was troubleshooting an issue for a user and
noticed that the "nomail" option was set for them in a particular
list. Obviously, because of this, they weren't getting any mail; I
presume the flag was set because of bounces. My question is this: is
there any way that, from the command-line, I can generate a list of
users who have a particular flag set -- like the "nomail" flag -- from
the command-line? My overall goal is to be able to run a script
against every mailing list we have to print me the users with the
"nomail" flag set.
The only way I currently know of to view the flags is through the
Membership Management page in the Mailman web interface, which I
really want to avoid for 870 lists.
