Yup, but so does the old downloadable archive link, so I don't think
this change /increases/ the spam harvesting potential.

I'm not sure what to do about it. The links are useful and since the
files are intended to be MUA-ready, munging the addresses is
inconvenient. I guess if the list admin is really worried about
harvesting, she'll make the archives private and force access through
the authentication page.
Not a great position to take, I admit.
