Not just the pipermail archiving lacks any mail support but admindb too.
I think that's a separate issue -- you're talking about quoting special HTML characters. Which, of course, should be done -- but it hasn't got anything to do with MIME.
MIME composed messages appears right out ugly and sometimes unreadable (a matter of skill of course).
I haven't tried this, but wouldn't simply squeezing the mail text through the .unmimify() method of the `mimify' standard Python module before formatting it into HTML work (for the QP/base64 MIME issue, multipart messages is a whole other can of worms)?
Is there a problem with what headers are retained in the mbox-format version of the archive (i.e. are the headers needed for proper MIME decoding stripped from the archive)?
