Also: just set the 'Reply-to' header on emacs-diffs@ mails to go to

Note this is not subject to the usual objections to Reply-to munging.
It's always okay for the sender of a message to set Reply-to, and in
this case, the sender is the version control system itself -- it sets
Reply-to in order to indicate that the appropriate place for replies is
the development mailing list, not the diffs list.
