Mailing list "reply-to" setting

Agreed, but, subject tagging is very useful for those who prefer to have
things hit your inbox first, before archiving. And there seems to be a
lot more agreement on the tagging issue than on the reply to.

Out of dozens of MLs I'm subscribed to, this is the only one which does
not tag the subject, making it feel weird. The reply-to seems to be
50-50, again according to my personal subscriptions.
