We have this already so that's fine.

Not quite, they can be arbitary

For example the dfeault value is 

"# Lines that *start* with a \'#\' are comments.
from: .*"

Indeed. And fairly easy to do.

In fact, committed.

Their implementation is bad. Love this ...

    * If member_posting_only is 'yes', then entries added here will 
      have posting privilege in addition to list members.
    * If member_posting_only is 'no', then only the posters listed here 
      will be able to post without admin approval.

which caught me out when I turned off members only posting.

Should eb easy to fix.

It's going to need a cron job to call a script (nacho?) - how hard is it 
to ask for all messages from the archive in the last $period of time?

Yes. And easy  to do.
