Depends on how Majordomo stores the archived messages. If you can
convert them to a mailbox, just store that in the right archive
directory [1] and rebuild the archive [2].

-thh

[1] $MAILMAN/archives/private/$LISTNAME.mbox/$LISTNAME.mbox
[2] run $MAILMAN/bin/arch $LISTNAME (or run it with the --wipe option)
