Modern versions of mailman do have this option. But NO, DONT BUGGER
ABOUT WITH MY REPLY-TO HEADERS. It is a lot safer to accidently send a
message to one person when you meant to send it to thousands than to
accidently send it to thousands when you meant it for one person. You
can always resend a message to more people but you can't take one away
from people once they've got it.
