/usr/sbin/postmap $1

to the beginning of your script and put

POSTFIX_MAP_CMD = '/path/to/your script'

in mm_cfg/py. This will invoke your script with argument equal the path to virtual-mailman whenever lists are created or deleted. Your script will then run the default postmap command to update virtual-mailman.db and can then do whatever you do do update relay_recipients.

The FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/ZoCj> has more details on this kind of process.
