I know that a large number of lists do reply-to munging.
However, that violates RFC1123, and it violates the principle of
minimal munging, and it makes it virtually impossible to have
discussions across multiple mailing lists (now one doesn't often
want to do that, but imagine we want to discuss with the Perl 6
folks how their VW can be integrated with DotGNU... the only
reasonable way to have such a discussion IMHO is to have it
across two mailing lists, one of ours and one of theirs.)

For a more detailed discussion please refer to
