It's a pretty easy script:

remove_members --all mylist
mysql -h localhost -e "SELECT email from people" mydb | \
	add_members -n - -c n -w n mylist

remove_members -all otherlist
mysql -h db.mydomain.com -u foo -p "SELECT addr FROM folks" customers | \
	add_members -n - -c n -w n otherlist

This is for mysql/mailman, but you get the idea.
