*Some* of the problems with duplicate messages is that people are CCing
everyone on the thread by using the "group-reply" feature of the mailing
list. They are doing this because the Debian lists don't have Reply-To:
set to the list.
Because of this problem, I have started using "mutt" as my mailreader,
because it allows you to get around this problem with a "list-reply".
But unless the Reply-To: is changed, or everyone starts using different
mailers, this will be a problem.
