Mailman's interface to Pipermail is what does this check, currently
defined as:

    X-No-Archive: yes
    X-Archive: no

prevents the message from being archived in any way.  I don't think
there are standards for this particular header (else, why would it be
an X- header?), so I'm wondering if I understand common practice well
enough.  I.e. should the presence of X-No-Archive: itself, regardless
of value, prevent archiving of the message?
