"Dan's proposal is intrinsically flawed. It incorrectly assumes that the

responders need to think about where their replies go. Mail-Followup-To
won't decrease the number of messages that go to the wrong place."
But you can at least tell people if you want or need a separate copy
in addition to what gets sent to the list. People who don't want separate
copies should be setting mail-followup-to. Even if not all mail clients
support it some do.
