If these '.archive' files are in *nix mbox format, they can be used
directly. Otherwise they first need to be converted to mbox format -
i.e., flat text files containing raw messages separated by 'From '
If, for example, you have a new Mailman list named mmlist, you can copy
such an archive file to archives/private/mmlist.mbox/mmlist.mbox and
bin/arch --wipe mmlist
To create pipermail archives from the old mbox.
