Sure -- write your pruning code in Python.<wink/>

What's the big deal about a three-line withlist script?  That's really
the only way to guarantee that you'll get correct locking in the
future with upgrades to Mailman.  Locking is an internal detail to
Mailman, and although AFAIK there's no particular reason to expect it
to change, it *could*.
