It is the option that is broken, ironically because the mail clients are
doing the right thing, that is, exactly what they are told to do, when the
wrong things happen. It is also ironic that Reply-To mail loops frequently
are caused by vacation programs doing the right thing, again, doing exactly
what they are told to do.
It is there because there is a vocal minority (at least I hope it is a
minority) ignorant of how to use their mail clients and totally lacking in
any desire to change that.
Seriously, read the "Reply-To Munging Considered Harmful" treatise.
