 My recollection is that feeding them out of order should produce an archive that looks mostly right but that the Next and Previous message links will reflect the order in which hypermail got them. Maybe there are some other problems I don't recall, but those are the only ones that seem hard to avoid.

 If you're willing to accept the minor problems mentioned above, just feed them in with -u or increment = 1. Otherwise recreate the archive from scratch.
