The mailman-htdig integration patches posted on sourceforge were 
specifically designed to deal with this issue automatically. Each list's 
TOC has a search form for the list and URLs returned by htsearch for 
private archives go via a mailman script which enforces the same 
authentication rules as the standard private archive access delivery script 
in $prefix/Mailman/Cgi/private.py. More importantly, each list's archive is 
indexed independently so that htsearch will not return hits on material 
that cannot then be accessed by the user; the other problem with a common 
index including private archive material is that search results can reveal 
private material even if full access to the archive pages is subsequently
