This is an idea that's cropped up many, many times.  I think it's worth an 
experiment.  GNU Mailman (http://www.list.org/) is a good candidate for 
hacking in this regard, because archiving is integrated with the list 
management software.  In other words, the list management software will 
know what the archived URL will be before it sends the message.  That's 
not the case with the Majordomo/MHonArc combination BA is using right now.    (03)
