You think?  I don't.  ;-)

And what about my other argument?  (The including non list members into
discussions one.)

Hm.  You could drop mail that has address@hidden in the To: or Cc:
header, but doesn't have a List-Id: header.  That's the only way I can
imagine right now (at least without constructing a more convoluted
scenario); Mailman can't do anything for you, since you'll always get the
direct reply from a third party, i.e. without any list headers, etc.
(That's also why Olaf's suggestion in <address@hidden>
won't work, if I understood it correctly.)
