For inexperienced/new admins and sites there's significant advantage
to the all-in-one approach. You and I may not be fond of it, but we
also aren't members of that audience (which is a significant one for
Mailman in terms of population). I'm actually much of the mind that
the current state of the archiver is rather good when viewed from a
Jamie Zawinski "Worse is Better" perspective. It fulfills a minimal
need, and provides (reasonably, could be better) clear pointers to
where to go if you want to handle archiving better.
