Well, not exactly a "binary" code. It's python scripts.

The actual processing module for the administrative interface is
Mailman/Cgi/admin.py, but the modules that generate the various pages
are in Mailman/Gui/.

You could remove the 'archive' option from Mailman/Gui/Archive.py

Alternatively, I *think* (Warning! I don't know what I'm talking about)
you can just remove the Mailman/Gui/Archive.py* files alltogether AND


in mm_cfg.py to remove the Archiving Options completely and default
'archive' to Off for new lists. If you did this, I think the only way
to turn archiving on or off for a list would be with bin/withlist.
