I use Mutt to read my mail. In Mutt, the "L" key starts the composing
of a reply-to-list email.

I think that the developers, that is the people who are very important
to getting useful answers on this list, would be very unhappy if this
request, however politely phrased, were to be implemented.

IMHO, there are some things that are more important grand ideas of
social policy and open software. One is text-only email (no html), and
more important than that is MUAs that properly handle the
reply-to-list headers. ;-)
