Figured it out.  Even if you've got Defaults.py set to not do mbox-archiving
(and only html archiving), you still *have to have the 
archives/private/listname.mbox/listname.mbox file present*, or the 
index.html wont be generated properly.  I touch'ed all the needed
directories and files, sent a mail through to each list, and the
archives are showing up again.

Is this a bug or a feature? 8-)
