I don't believe that it's possible to change this until someone develops
archives that's going to be acceptable so long as every time you click on
anything you have to do a round-trip page retrieval from the server.
The ideal web archive looks and functions exactly like the user's mail
client, but with enhanced search features. This is exactly why Gmane is
so cool, because that's close to what it is.
(Which indicates to me that the real future of archiving of mailing lists
is in read-only IMAP folders.)
