	Today, you can have hidden private lists, but if you know the 
specific URL to go to, you can sign up for them.  It would be nice if 
we could make the archives hidden but not protected by a password, so 
that other people could go to the archives and see them, if they were 
given the proper URL.

	In "hidden" cases like this, it would also be nice if we could 
make the URL have a pseudo-random component that would make it more 
difficult to guess.  Right now, if you know the listname (or 
something close to it) and you know the server, that's all you need.

	Better handling of foreign languages and MIME, especially 
non-Roman languages?
