Or script something that takes advantage of the common parts (in your
example, the numeral), to create the list, and handle the

 == untested ==
    set -e
    passwd=`apg -n1`
    newlist list${1} listadmin at example.com ${passwd}
    cat "user${1}@domain.com" > subscr
    add_members -r subscr list${1}
    rm subscr

as something quick and dirty. The assumptions are that urlhost and
emailhost settings will be fine, otherwise, specify them, with their
respective options. 

Create that as a script, and run it with the common variable (e.g. 1)
as its only arguement.
