If you're trying to wind me up, please add a smiley. If not:
For someone as clever as I know you are, you can be awfully stupid
If I fail to insert some header defined by a long defunct draft, why
should mail clients break behaviour? Indeed, how am I even supposed
to know about what clients implement what drafts? Further, Mutt's
behaviour is *not* mandated by the mail-followup-to draft, which does
not state *anywhere* that absence of mail-followup-to should imply
"mail-followup-to: list". So even if i did have intimate knowledge of
all MUA related drafts, it wouldnt lead me to any conclusion other
than "Well, I dont need to set that header".
If I were to come along and demand that people honour some odd header
that only pine implemented, you'd laugh, furthermore you'd likely
argue similar to above.
