You can do it directly in Perl or Python (or whatever) using modules
designed for this (LWP or WWW::Mechanize in Perl, for example). I don't
know if there existing tools to do this, but there should be plenty of
example code to do similar things.

I know you said that the tool won't run on the same system as Mailman,
but if you can open up the database that the list addresses come from
and run the script there, this probably would make your life easier. I
wrote something in Python recently to sync between LDAP and Mailman, but
I do run it on one of the machines that's hooked into our Mailman
