bin/arch has some real problems when converting majordomo archives if the
archive contains "^From" in a message.  I know that majrdomo probably should
have escaped it, but it's annoying because it skipped the entire rest of the

Not sure if it's related, but several "beginnings of the month" weeks in the
archive look like:
Week-of-Mon-19981005: (containts posts from 5 Oct 98 till 11 Oct 98)
Week-of-Mon-199810-2: (contains posts from 1 Oct 98 till 3 Oct 98)
Week-of-Mon-19980928: (contains posts from 27 Sep 98 till 30 Sept 98)
Note that middle one.  Note the complete absense of posts from 4 and 5 Oct.
Looks like it might be an error in some date logic.
