A note / plea for those working on Pipermail archives.

It would be really nice if Mailman would store the archives in a 8.3
dos-compatible filename.  This makes the storing of archives on CDROM much
easier, and cross-platform friendly.  This means two things:

1. The archive volume names need to be trimmed.  For monthly groupings, this
only involves changing the "B" to a lower-case one in the following procedure
that is called to build the filename:
time.strftime("%b",(1999,i,1,0,0,0,0,1,0))  More work would be needed for
"Week of ...", but could be done.

2. The extension would need to be ".htm" instead of ".html"

Just my thoughts.
