A lot of creative jiggery-pokery can be done using ~mailman/bin/withlist
at a CLI prompt.  Without going into details (which are very detailed)
you can obtain a list of lists on the server using
Mailman.Site.get_listnames() and search for subscribers within each
element of the returned list of lists.  This stuff can be scripted and
run from a web UI if you wish.  Some knowledge of Python is necessary,
otherwise YMMV :)
