   would you (Ulf and Brent) please stop whining and accept that  
whoever manages the list may manage it in the way he thinks works  
best. There are solid technical arguments for not changing the Reply- 
To header. They are outlined, for example, in http://www.unicom.com/ 
pw/reply-to-harmful.html - which has been mentioned on the list. It  
is not ok to deride this as some stubborn techie's pet issue.

Rest assured that the decision not to change the Reply-To header was  
made after the pros and cons had been carefully weighed, as I would  
expect with every other technical issue.
