As usual, know why you shouldn't use it, and why you want to use it in
a particular case. As stated, setting one in an announce list to point
to a discussion list might be useful in many circumstances.

The thing that irritates me about this method is that I get two emails
for anything that someone follows up to on a list - one for my address
and one from the list. Of course I've mentioned this before and I
still haven't got around to coding something into mailman's delivery
mechanism so that it doesn't send to anyone who is already in the TO:
and CC: fields. In my copious free time, I suppose.

That looks like a good way to implement a general solution. Should it
be able to clobber headers that mailman would otherwise set itself?
