By "document/url archive" I'd like to be able to define a "library" for a list, a form for submission (even better: a little xml language that could be cherry-picked from the text of list messages themselves; but that's "version 2" feature :> ) of URLs and plain text documents; the url "http://foo.org/mailman/listinfo/<list-name>/archive would return a page of the archived links and links to the plain text documents. Yes, this is a bit duplicative of Pipermail, but it's also very handy to have stuff organized in a non-archival way (not thread or time or subject based). I imagine the best way to do this is to store URLs and glob.glob(<the archive directory>) pickled and then read them off the disk and build the page.
Have a look at phpHoo. It doesn't do exactly what you want, but is workably close.
