However, that's what is irritating me when people CC me rather than
send to the list.  The email client I use most often, Thunderbird,
does have a Reply-To-List, however that only seems to work when the
email has actually been sent through the list.  The end result is that
my Reply-To-List doesn't work when I'm CC'd.  Very irritating that *I*
have to pay the price for the bad practice of others.

I'll look into the options offered by mailman and then see what looks
like the best solution.  I have to say I tend to lean towards the no
Reply-To munging.
