The point is that adding layer after layer of temporary solutions doesn't
add up to an actual solution any more than not adding those layers.  All
it does add is more complexity to manage, more code to write and test,
more annoyance to anyone trying to use the system, and more potential
points of failure.  Separate archives (public stripped of anything that
looks like an email address, private unmodified), and an equivilant "give
me archive access" path to the subscription path (through email) as has
been suggested seems to be the best solution yet.
