1. I don't think hypermail is supported any longer.
2. Unless you have a patched version, it's abysmally slow at indexing large
message collections, because it never saves earlier results. Each
message file must be opened and parsed to generate the new index. This
happens each time a new message is received.
3. It loses the raw email message (most headers, etc). I suspect pipermail
does as well, but may have some other options for archiving messages in

I suggest you don't.
