Not really enthused about that idea.  Can they be hidden from the
group display, so that article links still work, but the groups are
not visible in the group overview anymore?

I wanted to point out that it is probably a bad idea to merge the
archives of several lists, as the discussions are not related.  I have
by now found out that more or less by pure blind luck, this is a 1:1
scheme.  So it probably would not harm to do this.

That would be a good idea, I think.  The old lists are gated to the
new ones, anyway, so nothing would get lost.
