Bug Description

This is an enhancement request. It would be cool if Mailman had a per-list option to export the username / password credentials to an AuthUserFile formatted file, to allow Apache to authorize access to web-based resources using Mailman user accounts.

I hacked together some stuff to make it work on my site, but I'm sure you guys could do a better job, so I'll just leave you with this link to what I did: http://www.dreness.com/blog/?p=205

Ideally this should be event-driven, so that any changes to the Mailman user db trigger an export to a configured AuthUserFile (assuming the option is enabled).

Cheers,
