Which is good, considering that between you and gindrup, the two of you

You're delusional if you think that.  The mailing list has grown out of

been 4235 messages sent to the list.  That's an average of 47 messages
sent per day.  Not even inet-access generates that kind of traffic! 
Making the reply-to: header set to the mailing address should have
happened a long time ago.
