I think you can just add Scrubber to the global pipeline in mm_cfg.py
or to a list pipeline. See
for ways to do that.

If you are concerned about space, and you don't care about preserving
as valid the links to attachments that were previously in archives or
digests, you can delete the archives/private/<list>/attachments
directories prior to running bin/arch --wipe. Then only the
attachments which are linked from the new archive will be stored, but
their file names will probably be different.
