Sorry I didn't express myself clearly: While it makes perfect sense
to redirect to "dev" a reply to a mail that comes from e.g. "commits",
it is questionable to do the same for a mail that was sent by a real
person. [That is, unless the policy is to make it difficult to make a
private reply to someone who posted to the list.  IMHO, it boils down
to decide which is more harmful: A message intended for the list that
is sent privately, or one intended to be private that is sent to a public
list?]
