[Mailman-Developers] Archive creation with zero messages

As stated in the mailman FAQ, at least one message should have been sent
before an archive is created. However, if you just run :
$prefix/bin/arch listname $prefix/archives/private/listname.mbox
then the archive is created even with zero messages and it displays :
Currently, there are no archives.

Which is a perfect solution. Why not just add that line to the
newlist-executable ?

Kind greetings,
