I'm not sure what Majordomo log format is but mbox format is pretty
easy to convert stuff into... just ^N^Nfrom<space> between messages.
The problem that I ran into when doing some conversion is that
Mailman 2.0 looks for some date/time strings on the same line as
the "from<space>" ... This is supposed to be fixed in the next release.
You can change it yourself (or see what to munge your output to
look like) by perusing mailman.py. See my messages from last week
on archiving for the exact line.
