First of all, that is wrong. the m.Lock() will reload the list object
and undo the m.real_name='bar'. Just add -l to the withlist command and
don't do either m.Lock() or m.Unlock().
To make a script, put something like
if not mlist.Locked():
mlist.real_name = mlist.internal_name()
in a file named rename_list.py in Mailman's bin/ directory and then you
bin/withlist -r rename_list bar
However, if this is cPanel there may be problems with the above.
