I want to be able to specify a new URL (not
necessarity scipy) which hosts a mailman archive and
be able to read it from within Shimbum and WL. In
other words, if you want to interface with a new
archive currently you have to create a new .el file
and add it to emacs-w3m. I am trying to say that it
should be automatic i.e. I just specify the home page
of the archives and a few other simple config flags
and the archive be available automatically.

I hope that is clear. if not please let me know.

Yes that is correct. It was my mistake that it
appreared as .org.
