I'm not sure this discussion is worth getting into but:
- Conor is *not* doing the right thing
- Conor doesnt have the ability to do the right thing, because his
MUA doesnt give him ability to do the right thing (AIUI)

Then those people should set Reply-To: <list>
(in lieu of better headers being formalised)

To set your headers correctly, ie that means setting Reply-To: <list>

No, how about the mutt people go and get these non-standard headers
RFC tracked? Oh wait, they did try, but very similar headers
*already* are in use for UseNet. And how about getting mutt to *not*

1. namely the ability to consider list-replies to mails lacking
mutt's magic headers as requiring reply to both list and original
