I have thought of this along time ago.  It is a change on some of
the functional goals of MHonArc: no dynamic system is required to view
archives.  I.e.  One can read MHonArc archives w/o the need of a server.

Let me count the ways I like static HTML files. 

  * simplicity
  * simplicity
  * their benefit from internet caching infrastructure
  * computational cheapness of serving them (disk is cheaper than CPU)
  * manipulability with many, many tools
  * benefit from OS level improvements

Some people, like me, despise databases and like static files a lot.
Some people are the other way around. Anyway, us static-file lovers are
a valid user set.
