I'd be happy to hack on it too, as I have two or three lists which
I have to clear out every day or so...

What I don't understand is why I have to do it at all, though.
I've got Mailman configured (near as I can tell) not to allow
*any* posts from non-subscribers.  Why should I, as admin, have
to deal with manually rejecting these posts at all?!  Most of
them say something about "Spam Assassin thinks this might be spam".
Well, so what?  Delete it, period, since it wasn't from a subscriber.

Or am I missing something obvious about how this all works?
