Assuming this is set_mod.py from
<http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/set_mod.py>, there is also a
-d/--domain option that can be used to specify a regular expression
pattern for doing all members whose addresses match the pattern.

It wouldn't be difficult to teach set_mod.py to read a file, but you
could always just do

  xargs < FILE ./withlist -r set_mod staff -u

to read the addresses from FILE.
