Lets *not* get into this. This is a strictly religious argument on the
level of vi vs. emacs.
There are reasons to have reply-to: fields, and the reasons are especially
when you want to direct all mail replied to list mail to the list.
THis relies on your client not being broken, and not the headers.
I'm not going to have this argument here, but there are valid reasons for
it, and lets not start this stuff again. It happens on every list I've run
or been on, and thats saying "over 200".
