I don't know pipermail very well, but I  know that it can add one message to
an archive, or rebuild a whole archive from an mbox file.

Can it however  update an existing archive with whatever  messages have been
added to  a mailbox  in the  last X  hours (i.e.  disable HTML  archiving in
mailman and run arch from cron)
If I have to, I could extract a  portion of the mbox file if pipermail can't
figure  out which  messages are  new in  the mbox  and not  yet in  the HTML
