I agree. If MM2 and pipermail is any indication of how often admins just
'leave the defaults', then bunding no archive interface with MM3 would mean
most mailing lists would have no archive.
I'd personally like to see a better archiver rolled into an MM2 point
release, as well as upcoming MM3 development. (I understand pipermail URL
compat would be nice in that case).
