... forgot to finish my sentence. :)  I don't think there's enough of a 
compelling reason to force people to do something new if they don't 
want to.

Also, on the subject of archivers for mailman: the current archiver, 
pipermail, isn't exactly a favourite with most people.  One big reason 
it's still used is that it has very few dependencies, so the dependency 
list of Mailman doesn't get too huge.

If we're feeling ambitious and wind up adapting/creating a solution 
that also doesn't have too many dependencies, we could potentially 
offer it up as a replacement for the current archiver.
