Not exactly.  List-reply sends a reply to the list and any other people
listed in Mail-Followup-To.  The thing that bugs me about this is that mutt
often adds other list-readers' e-mail addresses to Mail-Followup-To, 
effectively rendering this feature useless.

I don't personally believe that munging reply-to is a good idea on a list
this large.  In general it causes more problems than it solves.
