Please change Mailman back to NOT force the rewrite for Reply-to

I see that someone has instructed Mailman to munge the reply-to. Please 
don't do that. I was about to make a *private* reply to someone, and 
realized that the setting had changed, and that I was trapped into 
replying to the list.

Normally I'd have just made this point privately, and perhaps only on 
Futures, but since it seems to be a recent change, I'm doing the public 
service of pointing it out, while asking that it be adjusted back.

Last week we lost a giant in the world of computing.
Last weekend we lost the giant on whose shoulders he stood.
Rest in peace, friend.
