Fair warning, as I must when things like this come up.  This rather
blatantly violates RFC-822, the document which defines the Internet mail
standard.  Reply-To is supposed to be set by the originator of a message
(ie, the person who submits it to the list), not the agent responsible
for handing the message off to the final MTA for delivery to the list's
subscribers.

Replies to a mailing list is something that correctly should be handled
by the MUAs (mail readers) of the list's readership.  This should not be
arbitrarilly enforced by anyone, least of all the mailing list manager
program.
