I have a solution to this:
Reference the private URL.
Have the private cgi issue a redirect to the public archive URL if it
detects that the list has public archives (after parsing config.db)
Your ideas about de-miming and referencing attachments stored on the server
are perfect. This will solve many problems I've had and seen.
