withlist is the all-purpose command line tool. See
http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/set_mod.py for a withlist script to do
what you want.

Alternatively, you could just give the authorized posters the list's
moderator password and let them post with an Approved: password header
or approve their own posts. This is much more secure (spoof proof)
than unmoderating the posters.
