The tools will never be able to do the right thing because the right
thing is highly context dependent. On Debian lists it is convention to
not CC unless there is some indicator that you should. On LKML not
CCing widely is discouraged. Each community has their own rules and
there are too many tools for all of them to ever be able to know about
these differences.

I'd prefer that it didn't change. If it did I'd have to figure out how
to use noreply@debian.org in From, unsubscribe from the lists or get a
completely new client and mail setup.
