The feature isn't there, but you can code it with minimal work IMO because
pipermail already has code that does just that.
The idea would be to call the pipermail code to modify the body of the
message before it's sent back out (of course, that would only work if the
list is archived, and it would be a pain in the butt for lists that require
you to log in before viewing archives)
