Quarantine settings are not applied to Archive Mail

Dear list,
  I set-up my mailscanner (R4.84.3-1) to archive all the emails, using 
the "Archive Mail" setting.
That works correctly, but i need user/group and dir/file permissions 
changed from root:root/660 to the same user:group/perms used by 
quarantine (which by itself works correctly, changing the ownership to 
my webserver user).

Also in MailScanner conf seems that the archive would use the same 
settings, but quick-looking into the code, i'vent found anything 
referring to that settings into the archiving code, and seems not 
working as stated in the short documentation into the conf file.

It's a missing feature / erroneous comment ?

Obviously, if anyone has a patch for this, it's welcome.

Thanks in advance.
