Save the above 3-line script as bin/show_reminders.py (or if you'd
rather save it as bin/identify_reminder_lists.py, change the def to

def identify_reminder_lists(mlist):

Then run it via

bin/withlist -a -r show_reminders

(note no .py suffix) or run it with

bin/withlist -a -r identify_reminder_lists

if you used that name.

And you do not need a shebang line in the script. bin/withlist has an
appropriate shebang line and it in turn knows what to do with the -r
