It seems like it would be possible to augment the prune_arch script to
add place holder messages for pruned messages thus making sure that the
prior saved URLs would still be valid. I.e.:
| From: Pruned <maillist at example.net>
| To: Mail List <maillist at example.net>
| Subject: Pruned
| Date: $originalDate
| This message has been pruned from the archive.
I think that the ~160 bytes that each pruned message would consume would
be worth retaining the functionality of the prior saved URLs.
Just my 2¢ worth.
