What's the likelihood of that happening? If it's high, then why not
offer the current day in archive format? That wouldn't be any
different from subscribing to the list-- actually the bandwith would
be less for this case because you would download the digest in one go,
and it'd be compressed.

No because raw still adulters all the addresses, and thus can't be
read by "mutt -f FILE". I guess one could write a tool to put the "@"
and "."'s back in, but having this readily available on the web page
is way cooler ;-).
