I don't think pipermail is a good foundation to build on.

I think the first step would be to look at what other mailing list
viewer applications are available, and see if we can find one that both
offers more functionality, and a proper mechanism to allow us to skin it.

Anyone have a suggestion for a good tool? (I'll check the mailman list
archives to see what they recommend.)

I think many have fallen by the wayside as free hosted services, like
Gmane, have become popular.
