[Mailman-Users] How to protect list archives?

Is there a relatively straightforward mechanism to protecting list  
archives from prying eyes? From what I can tell, anyone that can  
guess the URL of the archives (e.g. www.foo.org/pipermail/listname)  
can view the archives of the list, even if they're not a subscriber  
to the list.

Rather than make a .htaccess file for each list, or even disable  
archives altogether, what can I do to secure this? This is with  
mailman-2.1.9, built-in pipermail on RHEL 4. I have ~ 830 lists with  
a couple hundred messages per list, on average.
