The only way I can think of doing this is to generate a header file
periodically, and pass the contents of the generated file to
config_list as a "msg_header" setting

As for the message number, I'm not too sure how to go about with this:
I can't think of a canonical way to do that; unless 

    *   all posts are moderated, and you generate the message
        number from the list's mbox.
    *   that new posts don't happen between runs of $generating
unless your MTA writes something at SMTP time building the message
number, or if you increment after delivery.

I think I would use something at SMTP time, were this me. 

Quite why I'd create a "Message Number", when there should be a
Message-Id: header, I'm unsure of.

The trouble with the rat race is that, even if you win, you're still a rat
