Mailman-with-Pipermail sort of does have this now, but it's in a silo that's
not really accessible outside that small part of the system.  I've already
defined a message store interface (which may or may not be sufficient), and
storing messages there is exactly what I want to do.

Besides, I think the state of open source archivers is sadly very lacking.
