Those mailing lists are doing it wrong.

The fundamental similarity between people who request Reply-To munging
is that they are terrible at operating their email client. I still have
hopes for the human race, and part of that hope is that people who are
capable of joining a list as well as operating subversion are competent
at the simplest task of pressing "Reply All" (the button on
Thunderbird). This is similar to people who complain about heated
debates "filling their inbox with junk" because they are incapable of
setting up mail filters and folders.
