if he's using mutt, no munging of the reply-to field is
necessary:

to reply to the sender, use mutt's "r" key. that'll reply
off-list to the sender, and nobody else will be the wiser.

to reply PUBLICLY to a list, use mutt's "L" key. it looks for
'x-mailing-list' headers and uses that as the reply-to, but only
*IF* you've set up your ~/.muttrc to recognize the list name:

	# ~/.muttrc
	lists debian-user debian-www debian-doc magick-user

using procmail to break up incoming mail to various folders, of
course, is still quite a delightful way to go.
