The thing is, you need to know something about the structure of the
pickle file format, before you can tell what means what. I don't see
how you can get that without having another Mailman installation
where you can use the standard command-line tools to extract the
information you need.
So, why not install Mailman on another machine, restore the
appropriate bits of the /usr/local/mailman directory, and then run
the appropriate command-line tools? Or, for that matter, why not
just restore the entire /usr/local/mailman directory structure, then
re-install a new copy of Mailman on top of that (in case there are
architectural differences, etc... between the two machines), and then
get back into operation pretty much immediately?
