Here's one using the support for JSON in more recent versions of 

import json

actions = { 'actions': [ { 'type': 'changeFlags', 'enable': [ 'AddThis', 
'AndThis' ], 'disable': [ 'RemoveThis' ] } ] }
print json.dumps(actions)

Here's a more crude approach outputting a raw property list in a bash 

cat << ENDL
	actions = (
			type = 'changeFlags';
			enable = ( "AddThis", "AndThis" );
			disable = ( "RemoveThis" );

Note that the “flags” must be the IMAP keywords used for the tags 
(and not the display names).

Alternatively, setup a custom key binding which calls the bundle command 
*and* changes the tag.
