Some mail clients also offer a "reply to list" feature, that depends
upon the mailing list adding a header indicating that it's a mailing
list (and the adderss thereof). Not so many graphical ones,
unfortunately, but there you go. That feature ignores the reply-to
header and uses the mailing-list header to determine what to send it to.
