Yes. accept_these_nonmembers is a Python list whose elements are
strings equal to email addresses or regexps matching email addresses.
accept_these_nonmembers is a single string consisting of zero or more
email addresses separated by newlines.

You could do a few different things in your config_list input. One such
would be

if mlist.acceptable_aliases:
    mlist.acceptable_aliases += '\ntestuser at example.com'
    mlist.acceptable_aliases = 'testuser at example.com'
