That's what I thought, but the fact that sufficient numbers of files and
directories didn't match up between the repository and
/var/www/html/mlton.org made me suspicious.  And I didn't know where on
mlton.org I should copy the files from.

"Search Archive" would be fine.

That seems to be a little harder, since HyperArch.py is generating archive
pages for arbitrary lists.  Note that in order to narrow google enough,
when you search the  mlton  list, then I pass  -inurl:user  to filter out
the  mlton-user  list, while to search the  mlton-user  list, I pass
+inulr:user  to filter the other way.
