The easiest way to do this would be to create some script to sumarize
this information from Mailman's bounce log.

You can obtain a list of members whose delivery has been disabled by
bounce processing who haven't yet been removed from the list with

  bin/list_members --nomail=bybounce LISTNAME

but this won't get those whove already been removed. You have to get
that from the bounce or subscribe logs.
