[Mailman-Developers] threaded view on archive does not work

There's another couple things in pipermail that I also wanted to bring up.

#1. Having the link to "Download the raw archive" is IMHO a serious serurity leak.  This link to the .mbox file allows the user to grab every email address that has posted to the list... even if you have Mailman "remove" them.  I take this out of every install I do.  How many people really want a .mbox style file anyways, with all the header junk?

#2. Apparently messages like mine don't wrap properly, because Pipermail uses the <pre> </pre> to display it.  Would not a better approach be to simply change the font to a fixed-width style?  From what I read of the HTML spec, most all html tags within the <pre>s still get executed.
