9. Retrospective reload of archives a double-bonus

If you've got a mailman archive such as link's massive resource, at:
the list admin or at least sysadmin should be able to load it up.

But does anyone know of a way to backload from personal 
email-archives, retaining the dates of the original postings?

If you just did a bulk re-post (prior to switching on all the 
subscribers of course!), it would add them all as-at the date of the 
bulk re-post, not as-at the date of the original posting.
