Interesting, I could have used this to add Spam-filtering based on
SpamAssassin-headers. Did it replacing /usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman
by call to procmail...

But we do care at least for non-digest mails, (digest-users may use
archive when links are lost, non-digest users too, but the have
maybe higher priority and assume attachments in tact)

Now I see that we must reprogram our archive-cutting-program.
List admins may turn the archiving off and then running
bin/arch --wipe will delete all attachments or only those in
mbox will survive. My tests (so far) show that bin/arch with
or (whithout) --wipe deletes everything except mbox in lists
archive. Have to figure out safe way to keep recent attachments
in tact. (Maybe move to safe and back is the only safe way that
might work through Mailman versions.)
