For the index, this might be a good idea. For the article, I'd prefer
if there are some traces left of the original subject. E.g. if it is
quoted-printable, you can often guess the subject from only the ASCII
parts in it - atleast for the Latin languages.

OTOH, Mailman should IMO support all widely-used encodings out of the
box; then this might not be an issue anymore.
