This isn't a function of Mailman... however if you search the Archives
you will find several submitted scripts that automate this task (using
whatever criteria the writer thought was best).

This is actually an easy process to automate via script. 
You can check on archive sizes via the system command "du".
You can check on archive dates by pulling headers out of the mbox file.

Give it a shot - it's fairly easy to do.  If you want to hire it out,
let me know.  I'm snowed in today.
