It looks like the message sent right after yours was mentioning a 
similar problem.  The response to that one indicated a full disk array:

There was no estimate on how long the missing messages would take before 
they get into the archive:

For now, try the other archives.  Eyebrowse on nagoya seems to work:

The only problem with values that I know of are maps that restrict valid 
values and maps that have different contracts on what the value actually 
is (e.g. MultiMap).  That may be enough of a reason not to provide 
decorators for the values -- at least for our next release.
