If somebody cleaned out spam or private information, and regenerated
the archives, that might change the order, and the link would break.
I know this happens with MHonArc (since the URLs it generates are
simply the serial number of processing concatenated with a prefix and
.html).  I don't know about pipermail but I wouldn't be surprised.

Why archivers don't use Message-Id for the URL, I don't know.
