Just off the top of my head, you could try something on machines 1 and
2 like

PUBLIC_EXTERNAL_ARCHIVER = 'ssh -e none mailman at machine3 "script

(all on one line), and similarly for PRIVATE_EXTERNAL_ARCHIVER, where
script would be on machine3 and would be something like

cat > $f
bin/arch $1 $f
rm $f

Of course, it wouldn't have to be ssh and could be it's own script, but
just something to push the message to a script on machine 3 which
would copy the message to a file and feed it to bin/arch for the
correct list.
