So your filter finds all RC5 list messages, adds
"Reply-To:rc5 at llamas.net" into the header so you can choose between it
and the sender.  Um, this is what the list was doing IN THE FIRST
PLACE!  So instead of the list doing it I'm supposed do it on my own if
I want that behavior.  That's f@#$ing brilliant.  Why didn't I think of
that.  Instead of the list doing it each person on the list should set
their mailer up to do it.  Hey, while we're at it let's say screw the
whole mailing list and create a distributed mailing list using address
books in everyones' mailers to send to all the list recipients.  I bet
if we try really hard we can make things REALLY work in a bass-ackwards
