[Mailman-Users] Harvesting addresses

I like the way that mailman changes e-mail addresses so that they 
cannot be automatically harvested by spammers, but I am concerned by 
the fact that a lists entire archive can be downloaded.  I want to 
have an open list but I am a bit uncomfortable with allowing the 
entire archive to be retrieved (with intact e-mail addresses) with a 
single click of the mouse.

Has anyone created a patch to remove the downloadable versions?  Am I 
just being paranoid?
