...and furthermore, if you insist on making the reply action in your mail
client do a reply-to-list by default, then you can munge the headers
yourself. (I've been doing this myself for a ong time -- until I started
using gmane, that is) Most modern mail systems have wonderful filtering and
header munging capabilities. All Haskell related mailing lists supply a
List-Id header for easy filtering.
