Don't know about the Debian list server, but mailman for example can
be set to not send a list posting to someone who is already in To: or
Cc:.  But, I don't like that because I have my mail sorted by List-Id
and mails sent directly to me obviously don't have that header.

Also, for example cyrus can filter out duplicate mail.  But, since the
direct mail is usually faster than the one going through the list
server, this results in the same problem as above.

That's why I like the way Debian lists are setup and the CoC.

Doesn't mutt have a reply-to-list functionality?
