I'm not sure if this is relevant to this discussion, but using mutt in
its "lists friendly mode", i.e. by using, by default, "L" to post to a
list, there is no "Reply-To:" header added, but rather a
"Mail-Followup-To:" one instead.  How universally this is honoured by
other email clients is another matter, of course.
