[Mailman-Users] Pipermail URL handling in archives

Please pardon me for butting in, I will be the first to admit I am probably the least qualified to give an opinion here, but....
It seems to me this is a DNS issue, no?  Simply because the trailing character, be it a comma or period, more or less represents "root" as far as DNS is concerned.  If you have a form front end it should not be that big a deal to just "trim" the period or comma from the URL.
Or am I just totally out of touch here???
