You get this for free in Mailman 2.1, since it implements a separate
queue for the archiver.  By default, the archiver queue runner runs
once per minute, but it would take a very minor bit of source hacking
to make it run, say once every 5 minutes.

In Mailman/Queue/ArchRunner.py change

    class ArchRunner(Runner):


    class ArchRunner(Runner):
	SLEEPTIME = mm_cfg.minutes(5)
