There is no per-list archive location. What you would need to do is
hack the Site.py get_archpath method once to take the archive location
from a list attribute rather than the global PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_FILE_DIR
and PRIVATE_ARCHIVE_FILE_DIR settings and to initialize the list
attribute to some default for new lists. (Note that all archives are
actually stored in in the 'private' directory - the 'public' directory
contains only symlinks for lists with public archives.)
