That's not going to work for me because I have three related listservs (one
group-wide and two for sub-teams) that all go into the same archive, and I
need to know which message went to which listserv.  

I think you can do it with resources, then and not have to hack the Perl.
All you have to do is use a different RC file per listserv and define
variables in each RC file appropriate to that list.  Use these variables in
the message page formatting, not in the index page formatting and you may
find it works.

At the point where you are accepting a message and launching MHonArc to
archive it use a filter rule to detect which listserv it came through (or
if you are calling MHonArc from the listserv it will know) and apply a
slightly variant RC file as appropriate.

Since I'm not running MHonArc myself, but instead prevailing upon a
much-harried, generous man with a justifiable limit to his patience and how
much of his system he'll allow me to burden, I think if it comes to that
I'll just go back to EXCS and allow a few extra fields to show up until
someone can tell me how to get them to really go away.  It's a good
thought, though.
