It doesn't look like you're trying to "make" Mutt do anything it doesn't
already do. You just need to use the right key for each job.

In Mutt's default keybindings:
r  will reply to the sender only
L  will reply to the list (CCing the sender _if_ they have set the
   mail-followup-to header)
g  will reply to both sender and list (plus anyone else the sender CCed
   on their post. The mutt manual calls it "reply to all recipients" for
   a reason.)

The <L> key only works if you have made mutt aware of the list, by using
the "lists" or "subscribe" syntax in your .muttrc file.

AFAIK, mutt cannot be made to actually issue a prompt in any of these
cases. So I guess if you really _really_ want to be prompted (instead of
just using the appropriate command in the first place) then you are
trying to make mutt do something outside its usual behaviour after all.

             Now I realize that just getting through the day
             without killing someone can be an achievement.
