The only suggestion I'd have here would be to maintain two archives -
the one internal to the mailman system, and possibly another external
email archive in, for example, Mhnonarc.  You could then set web
permissions via password or some such for the external archive.  This
would be really messy, though.  As Brad Knowles said, I don' think
Mailman can help you with this either.
