I'm not a fan of reply-to munging. I've seen it do bad things, and I've seen
people accidentally send sensitive, personal info to a list when they meant
to send it to an individual. The "failure mode" of a lack of Reply-To is
much better ("oops, didn't go to the list") than the failure mode of having
it ("oops, I just sent that personal slam to the whole world").
