I mean "archive" in the sense of "don't show archived pages in searches,
pagelists, and backlinks unless we provide an option that explicitly
asks for them."

Whereas "delete" means "don't show this page any more, even if we 
ask for it."  :-)

Hmm, here's a radical thought... we could simply give archived 
pages and groups a read password of "archive", which means that the 
page doesn't show up in pagelists until the archive password is
entered.  Nah, probably too confusing... :-)
