bug#7888: 23.1; default value of rmail-default-dont-reply-to-names

When you follow up mail from Gnus, deep in the stack they use a function
from rmail to calculate which addresses we should remove from the
Recipients list.

The function called by Gnus is 'rmail-dont-reply-to' in rmail.el and
removes all the user's personal addresses. However it advises two
variables the first is called 'rmail-dont-reply-to-names' which is set
by the user explicitly and the second is the
'rmail-default-dont-reply-to-names' which has a default value of
"\\`info-" which removes all addresses starting with info- on the
assumption that large mailing lists that broadcast announcement have a
name like that.

I was bitten by this default value in a list I'm subscribed to 

Is it possible to get this default value to nil? Does it even make sense
in 2011 to filter addresses by judging from their name whether they are
big announcements lists ? (that's the wording and justification in the
docs for this default value)
