As far as I am aware (albeit am no expert in these things), mbox_sha1sum's are not recommended as they are easily reversed with rainbow tables, see for example : http://my.umbc.edu/groups/ebiquity/news/43

To do this it seems to me a perl cgi that transforms the information from the list members can be quickly put together. The W3C has web servers, so there is no need to ask Google to host this I think. (Anyway I think Andrei Sambra was happy to host it).
