	I've checked the .mbox files that the Mailman instance that I
	run generates (the ones below mailman/archives/private/) and
	these seem to contain both References: and MIME.

	However, these files aren't (to the best of my knowledge)
	usually accessible via HTTP.  Thus, as I've pointed before,
	it'll require an explicit mailing list's owner / administrator
	action to replicate the messages already posted at Gmane.
