Yes, I plan to move the archives tab.

One side effect of this will be to change how the help messages
map to widgets, so that might have an effect on Brad's work.

The other changes I foresee involves replacing the tk_optionMenu
on the filters page with a listbox.

Both of the filters and archives will have a "current x" field that
will get filled when a filter or archive gets selected.

The other bit of hidden logic that still needs to be put in is to use
the project variables to determine if multiple output archives can
be created. (For example, if the variables are such that there
are no filters and one mailbox and one archive, then only one output
archive can exist at once.) That's a meaningful change that really
affects the behavior of the interface rather than the presentation
of the interface.
