Duh.  List-Post: is in RFC 2369 and of course Mailman already inserts
this header in messages.  Sad what happens to short term memory when
you get older. :)

BTW, I think this is the right bit of information that an MUA would
need to support a "post-to-list" option.  Seems to me all the
information is there without Reply-To munging for the user agent to
support whatever followup/reply operation it wants.  Reply-To munging
should be considered a hack that's (questionably) necessary until the
MUAs catch on.
