[Mailman-Users] Manual archive digester? Unique problem?

I run a website and mailing lists that uses Mailman. Our website is 
protected for members only. The ML archives are also flagged as private 
(this is a club... highly paranoid).

I want to put the archives onto the private website, but here's the 
problem. This version of Mailman is installed by the host and I DO NOT have 
access to any configurations or even the archives themselves. The location 
of the data files are "jailed off" to us in the shell.

My thoughts are to manually download the monthly archives in its "raw" 
form, run it through something that will digest it into useable form 
(threaded, searchable perhaps?), and put that on the website every month. 
Anyway know of anything like that?

My only other alternative would be to somehow link to the Mailman archives 
on this website, but we're trying to avoid members from first having to log 
into the website, then having to log into the archives.

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. I searched the FAQS and 
archives. I found "archive digesters", but my understanding is that I'd 
have to tweak the configuration of Mailman and again I have no access to 
the inner configuration.
