If there is an easier way, I am all for using it.  ???

I'm still a little confused.  Why not just remove the original messages
before the data is passed into mhonarc?

Now, if you are talking about removing the same set of messages from
existing set of archives, you can put the message-ids (or numbers)
in a text file and invoke mhonarc as follows for each archive:

  mhonarc -outdir /path/to/archive -rmm `cat msgs-to-delete-file`
