Summary: "From" needs to be escaped in archives

Initial Comment:
Problem:

List archives are stored in the MBOX format, 
according to RFC 822 and Unix man pages[1].  Lines 
in message bodies starting with the word "From" 
need to be correctly escaped/stuffed in the archives 
(according to the Unix man pages[1] or RFC2646 §4.
1), so clients importing the messages may correctly 
recognize message boundaries.  This does not occur 
in Mailman MBOX archives.

Is this already fixed in 2.1.x, then?

Please upgrade to Mailman 2.1.  This won't be fixed in the
2.0.x line.
