Is there a way to set a user's topics via a cli command?   

I've written a script which processes all the mail sent to "list-xyz-request" and automates subscription or unsubscribes to that list (in order to make both the subscription and unsubscribe options open).  It would seem easy enough to take mail sent to "list-xyz-request" with a "Subject: subscribe topic-abc " line and configure the user to receive mails sent to xyz that match topic "topic-abc".  But this would require a CLI command, and I was thinking it would be via the "add_member" command, but I don't see a means to set a topic value.  None of the other commands in mailman/bin hint at supporting  configuring a user's topic info.
