While we're noting other versions of hypermail, I'll stick my hand up as well.

Things that I concentrated on were
 better threading (making sure that all messages that should be in a  thread were caught)

 ability to include arbitrary HTML code at top and bottom of generated  pages (you've got this functionality in the new code)

 I did have a go at doing a version that handled attachments, but that  never got finished - I like what you've done with this in the new  versions.

In the unfinished, attachment-aware version I did, I had a go at rearranging the internal data structures. It seems to me that it would make more sense to have a single array holding all info about the messages and then the lists used for constructing the different index pages (thread/date/subject) could reference the info there rather than keeping their own copy. I've not had time to have a good look at your new code, so I don't know if you've already tackled this.
