Yes. Setting archive to private will require anyone visiting the
archive to go through the 'private' CGI and be authorized. The
'public' symlink will be removed and the 'pipermail' URL will no
longer work.

All links to the archive on Mailman's pages will be changed
automatically, but if you have any saved 'pipermail' URLs to archive
messages, they will no longer work.
