What worries me is that pipermail's "integration" with Mailman has
been a blocker (at the very least, sufficiently enthusiasm-sapping)
for real improvements in Mailman's archiving system for about a
*decade*. OK, so the new archiver/searcher is whizzy and nice, but
realistically, people are going to find a million use cases that the
new system doesn't do yet. Some people will prefer pipermail (if only
from inertia). Some will want to use a third-party system. It needs
to be easy for people to choose.
If we don't do the surgery now, when will it get done?
