Try Ecartis (formerly Listar - http://www.listar.org/).  Packaged in
Debian as listar still.

Some features include:
- modular
- written in c
- secure remote administration which uses cookies, so hard for someone
  to spoof the admin addr

Ecartis has this packaged in listar-cgi.

I think you can do this with listar-cgi but if not then as you say it's
not much effort to add this functionality.

Can do this with any decent list manager.
