+1. It seems that reply-to-list reflects the attitude that all
conversation should occur on-list (i.e., we are all conversing in a
group discussion), whereas the reply-to-sender reflects the attitude
that much conversation should be started on the list, but then carried
out off-list (i.e., we use the list as a coordination point, but most
discussions are between individual people). I think it's better in the
situation to support the former as the default.
