And reply to all causes the original poster to get two copies of the mail,
one of which is not handled by list filters because it did not go through
the list.  It is a royal pain to reply to all and cut and past the list
address from the cc to the to line and clean it up so as to not cause too
much pain for others.  99% of the replys to list mail should go to the
list, so that means either causing extra traffic for people who actually
post to the list, or extra work when replying to the list.  I agree,
change default reply-to to the list address.
