The key is that you have to know what value to insert into List-Archive.
But it dovetails into a topic I've talked about before.  I would love to
have some way to calculate a unique archiving ID (more unique than
Message-ID <wink>) that two uncommunicative systems could use to
calculate a url relative to List-Archive.  Then Mailman could insert a
header and/or footer text in the list copy that points to the message in
the archive.

I don't think so.  Pipermail is fine for a large segment of the Mailman
community.  For them, having to do nothing to get an archive of your
list has a lot of value.
