Yes, it's a global setting, and it works for all mailing lists that
set the default list headers.

Yes, and this is the third or fourth time I'm asking you not
to send your reply to me and the list, but just send it to the list.

You should also respect the Reply-To header if the sender sets it,
and use that. Blanket reply-all does not respect that either.

No, those mailing lists that don't use the standard list headers (or
explicit Reply-To: list-addr) force you do that.

Well, I said 'arguably'. Your argument is that it is not easy to
avoid, mine is that it is. But, anyway, as you know by now, your
patch was inadequate and a better patch is being prepared.
