That is actually one of the reasons I prefer adding follow ups.  A new
person might read the lists first and if he/she sees a lot of "unanswered"
RFS, then we just look like we can never bother to reply people.

The second reason is that it makes it easier for me to see/remember
which of the RFSs have received attention (d-java and pkg-java ends
in different mail folders on my end).
