[Mailman-Users] bin/arch : ctime

I rebuilt, not long ago, the archives of a particular mailinglist, and  
the html files' atime/ctime/mtime were all changed to the time of the  
rebuild.  The search facilities I'm using, on the same machine-  
glimpseindex and swish-e - by default use the ctime or mtime to return  
results, which isn't very convenient when searching by Date:.

Has anybody ever written a script that would rebuild the html message  
archives that would also modify the file ctime/mtime back to the date  
of the message, as retrieved from the list's mbox file?

thanks in advance.
