The problem is the defacto standardized address obfuscation on the 
mailman web archive is easily reversible. All it takes is someone with 
the interest to write an automated 'use this address to email this 
mailman list' bot. The From addresses need to be rendered irreversibly 
unusable for email when displayed on the web archive to prevent that 
from happening.
