The problem lies in Pipermail code, which is an external tool adopted
to Mailman for archiving messages. The MIME-decoding part in Pipermail
is not complete. So, it has almost nothing to do with i18n of Mailman.

There are some solutions you could try:
- convert the archive from QP to 8bit using some script,
- use an external archiver for Mailman (e.g. MHonarc or hypermail),
- rewrite Pipermail code ;)
