Starting with Mailman 2.1.6, there is a scrub_nondigest setting in the
Non-digest options section of the web admin interface.

This will cause non text/plain parts of the message to be removed and
replaced by links to the archive where they are stored. You don't have
a choice of where the "attachments" are stored, but otherwise this is
the feature.
