There is a script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/set_nodigest.py>
which does the opposite - sets the list non-digestable and switches
all the digest members to regular. That may help.

Here's an actual interactive withlist which just switches all
non-digest members to digest without setting/changing the digestable
and non_digestable attributes.

[mark at sbh16 mailman]$ bin/withlist -l gpc-test
Loading list gpc-test (locked)
The variable `m' is the gpc-test MailList instance
>>> from Mailman import mm_cfg
>>> for member in m.getRegularMemberKeys():
...     m.setMemberOption(member, mm_cfg.Digests, 1)
>>> m.Save()
Unlocking (but not saving) list: gpc-test
