I have recently installed hypermail 2.1.2. For one of my mail lists I configured it
to do folder_by_date and monthly_index. I use a mail alias incremental update scheme.

My problem comes in that I have occasionally had some problem like wrong permissions
crop up (due to fat fingered admin) that causes the hypermail to complain and not update.

Ok, I can fix things and resend, but hypermail removes the .hm2index file prior to having its
problem, so that even if I DO fix the permissions, the list archive still fails because the .hm2index
is missing. The only way to get it back is via a mbox archive I keep to the side and a modified
config file for reproducing the index from the mbox format. As the archive gets bigger
this gets to be a bigger and bigger problem.

Is there anyway to put into hypermail some code that would create a backup copy of
.hm2index prior to blowing it away, so that recovery to the last good state is possible
without having to recreate the entire archive over again?
