I can't see anything that would stop you from doing this now...
Marc should be able to provide you with the old mbox archives, and
following them, simply subscribe to all of the lists, and you have
yourself an up to date archive.

I had the forums going, and have been playing with getting the archives
integrated, but the importer is way too buggy, and needs a lot of work
before they can be brought to life.

A fully integrated solution would be sweet. One that combines the
features of the archives, the search engine, and the lists themselves.
