Why not just make your archives public?

Effectively, you do the same thing by not requiring password

After making the archives public, you have to rebuild them with
"bin/arch --wipe" so that the URLs in the archive that are currently
of the form
<http://example.com/mailman/private/listname/attachments/...> become
of the form <http://example.com/pipermail/listname/attachments/...>.
