The issue is this "'List:{}'.format(mlist.real_name)" requires Python
2.7. With Python 2.6 it needs to be 'List:{0}'.format(mlist.real_name).
For older versions, there is no format string method, so string
interpolation as in 'List:%s' % mlist.real_name needs to be used.

I have updated the scripts at
<https://www.msapiro.net/scripts/list_etc.py> and the mirror at
<https://fog.ccsf.edu/~msapiro/scripts/list_etc.py> to work with older
Python versions.
