[Mailman-i18n] Persistently drunken archives

Hi everyone :)

I am amused and somewhat puzzled by this string in mailman.po:
reference:	⑤	Mailman/Archiver/pipermail.py:297
Original:	⌘0	Reloading pickled archive state

Is it the archive, or the archiver who is pickled? Do they stay that  
way? :D

If this word has some specific technical meaning, please explain. ;)

(For those who haven't encountered this idiom yet, "pickled" in  
English means you're not only drunk, you also put in your best  
efforts to stay that way permanently! Not the reputation we want for  
a staid and respectable mailing list software. ;) )

(Or you're a gherkin. Take your pick. ;) )

I notice that this word is also used in the next string, so possibly  
gherkins are not involved?
