I'm currently opposed to making it easy to disable these headers.
They are described in RFC 2369 and I think it's important for Mailman
to be as standards compliant as possible.  That some MUAs haven't
caught up yet isn't a good enough argument to change my mind.

That being said, I claim that it's trivial to hack the source code to
disable these headers.  Having your patch available unofficially is a
good thing too (thanks!), since it gives sites more options.  I'm glad
you've made the patch but I'm not inclined to include it in the
official release.
