Yahoo!, SourceForge, etc. are good. However they are, as you mentioned
already, quite primitive and, what seems more important to me, are
outside of the W3C. The W3C software is a) better (well, at least to
me), b) vendor, business, and circumstances independent and c) used by
the large W3C community. I'm sure everyone agrees with points b and c.

xmlhack.ru is running a couple of lists at SourceForge, but they have
been useless so far.

I believe almost anyone could run that thing. But I, for instance,
have no idea what mailing list/archiving software should be used.
Could anyone point me to a good piece of software with multiple
encodings support?

Yeah, unfortunately. Or fortunately? At least we have these lists! :)
