Sorry, guy.  I wish there was a way to un-ring that bell.

I think we could put up with "one last change", to a new format that 
was pretty much guaranteed to be self-consistent no matter how many 
times you wipe and rebuild the archives.

Note that this was one of the first bugs I ever filed for Mailman, 
years ago.  It hasn't been addressed since then, and I've long since 
given up hope that it would ever be addressed any time soon.

Trend Micro has announced that they will cancel the stop.mail-abuse.org
mail forwarding service as of 15 November 2006.  If you have an old
e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
with the current address.
