Yes and no.  Pipermail was a separate project for its early life, then
it was fused into Mailman and now I think that's its only incarnation. 
On the whole, Pipermail was an excellent addition, providing very
important functionality.  But everyone agrees it needs work.  Designing
and implementing an archiver is A Project Unto Itself and I don't want
to hold up Mailman 3 waiting for an archiver rewrite.

That's a possibility.

I'd ask around on mailman-developers, since this could be a Mailman 2.1
