I must have broken this somehow. Checking into it...

Ahh. Very good points. The latter isn't exactly feasable in a few
cases, but it's a start.

I hadn't thought of that. Yes, it should work. I've added a third
"Alias" line to Apache's srm.conf:
Alias /icons/ /home/httpd/icons/
Alias /pipermail/ /home/mailman/archives/public/
Alias /mailman/archives/ /home/mailman/archives/public/
I left the old one in in case the change broke something. As a side
note, I'll say that I was more concerned with URL uniformity than the
actual location of the archiver and data.

Perhaps, but that's also why some of us are paid well. ;-)
