I think I'd feel more comfortable with a tool which takes a (non-corrupt)
Mailman database and writes it to (tab-delimited?  XML?) text for later
conversion back.

A year ago I would have said tab-delimited...now I think I'd rather have
XML...from there it could become most anything.  And next year, I'd
probably want XML encrypted for privacy reasons.

Not rocket science.  ;-)
