Oh yeah, the defaults would be


so if the message had a Date: header earlier or later than 90 days
from now, it would get the header overridden.  Note that this munging
happens before the message is handed to the archiver, and it occurs
regardless of whether Pipermail or an external archiver handles it.
The original Date: header will be put on X-Original-Date (does that
need to be configurable?)
