Existing archived messages or new messages as they are archived?

For new messages it's trivial. Just make a sitewide version of the
article.html template for each supported language that includes the
tracking code. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/jYA9>.

For existing archived messages there are a couple of ways. The easiest
is just run "bin/arch --wipe LISTNAME" on each list after installing
the edited article.html template, but this can be time consuming and
have undesirable side effects if your LISTNAME.mbox files go back a
long way.

The other way is to just write a script to add the tracking code to
every archives/private/*/*/+([0-9]).html file.

In either case, you may then want to fix the change date of the files.
See <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/update_archive_mtime> for the
rationale and a script to do this. In fact, you could modify that
script to add the tracking code too.
