The following is an interactive withlist session that will add the

[mark at sbh16 ~]$ mmp/bin/withlist -l gpc-test
Loading list gpc-test (locked)
The variable `m' is the gpc-test MailList instance
>>> m.addNewMember('bogus at somewhere')
>>> m.Save()
Unlocking (but not saving) list: gpc-test
[mark at sbh16 ~]$

The entry following the third >>> prompt is a control-D, EOF. Of
course, you will use your own list name and path to Mailman's bin/
directory, and after adding the member, you will probably want to go
to the list admin membership list and set it to nomail.
