  Well, I could be off (and if I am, I'm sure someone will fl^H^Hpolitely
correct me), but I think you are barking up the wrong tree, approaching
this as a Mailman issue.  From what I can work out in my head, Mailman
is simply an email multiplexer; it doesn't really have a concept of a
coherent set of past messages.  However, you may want to look into
something that can work on a Pipermail archive; also, on the archive
page for my list (and I assume yours as well) there is a link where you
can download a full archive of every post ever sent to the list, which
should be parseable by anything that speaks mbox.
