It all depends on your Content filtering. But whether or not you
scrub_nondigest, any of these things that remain after Content filtering
will ultimately be stored aside anyway (at least if the list is
digestable or has pipermail archives), either when the message is
scrubbed per scrub_nondigest or, if scrub_nondigest is No, when the
message is scrubbed for the plain digest and/or the archive.

How text/html parts that remain after Content filtering are handled
depends on the setting of ARCHIVE_HTML_SANITIZER, but by default, they
are html-escaped and stored aside. Read the documentation in Defaults.py
for more detail.

Note also that for many lists everything that is stored aside is
actually stored aside twice, once during digest preparation and once
during archiving. scrub_nondigest = Yes avoids this duplication, but has
what for some is a downside by scrubbing individual messages and
messages in MIME format digests which really messes up HTML, if HTML is
wanted on the list.
