I wasn't sure what you meant by "it must", but if you were trying to
suggest that the mail list software should be changing the Reply-To
header, then that is not what is desired by this project, as
explained here:

The way your mail reader uses square brackets in the "Re" part of the
Subject line is a bit of a joke ("Re[2]:"), and my mail reader
(Apple's Mail.app) doesn't get it and doesn't display the threading
properly making it very hard to follow threads you've participated
in. I would sure appreciate it if you would just prefix replies with
"Re:" as per usual.

Your quoting style, with initials preceding the angle bracket, is
also unusual to me, and to Mail.app, which then doesn't apply the
beautiful colored quoting that is so helpful in quickly identifying
who said what block of text. So if possible, please stop doing that
as well.
