I would recommend modifying the Apache config itself. Specifically,
doing something like:

<Location /mailman/private/the-archive>
AuthName "admin-private archives"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile whatever
Require user adminuser

Note that you are protecting a Location rather than a directory. This is
why a .htaccess file isn't possible. I forget what the actual URL is for
private archives, but this should give you the right idea.

Please let me know if this really does work. I'm just hypothesizing :-)
