In other words, you need this list to function as if it didn't munge
the reply-to header. I'm serious. Here's why: when possible, my mail
client acts as if the reply-to header wasn't munged. The only time
i don't CC you is when i explicitly remove your address from the CC
list. You have said that you find this useful; i have said that i find
it useful; i would like to suggest that you change the list so all of
us can do it quickly and easily.
