And what if you want the private replies to go somewhere other
than your "From" address?  That's what Reply-To is for, why do
you want to strip it of that functionality?

Or, since there's an existing header in Usenet called "Followup-To",
and we're trying to provide that same functionality in mailing lists,
how about we call it "Mail-Followup-To"?  No sense reinventing the wheel
any more than necessary, right?
