My personal opinion is that pipermail should be removed and mailman should not contain a default archiver since there are plenty of good archivers already (lurker, mhonarc etc). Adding wrappers around them would be simpler than reimplementing them.
My hesitation to this has always been the turnkey question.
Pipermail has it's problems but it /does/ allow small sites to get
going very quickly with a full(-ish) solution.
It may be that most people get their Mailman installation from their
distro or hosting service and this is no longer as important. In
that case, I still wouldn't chuck Pipermail, but I would try to see
if we can adopt Jeff's goal of making the archive selection pluggable
and easily selectable by list admins.
