people not getting responses they would benefit from.
I totally disagree.

The only time this wouldn't work is if someone is using a mail client
taht doesn't respect the Reply-To header. As has been shown, virtually
all of the most popular mail clients in fact do respect it, so the times
that it didn't work would be the corner cases, not the norm.

However, since Florian has apparently investigated this and discovered
that the current list software cannot do this, it is a moot point... :(

I'd just like to make sure I'm clear on this, OK? If I get a message with a Reply-To header, and respond to it using Reply, not only does the response go to those in the Reply-To header, but that header is itself duplicated in my response? And the Reply-To header is also carried through if I use Reply All? That header inheritance is the part I didn't think was necessarily happening.
