That is what DJB had in mind with Mail-Followup-To: (for replying to the
list) and Mail-Reply-To: (for responding to the author) headers. (RFC2369's
List-Post: is Mail-Followup-To: in URL syntax.) Adding X-List-Author-Reply:
with the sanctioned RFC2369 set wouldn't hurt either.

Oh, I don't know. An RTS list gives you two such buttons, and people still
play pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey instead of engaging their brains.
