Ugh, please, please don't do that.  A couple of the lists that I was on used
smartlist, and it stripped the CC:/TO: fields, and it made it a real pain to
tell where the message had been to.  If I get 2 copies (or more, if I'm on
several lists that something got cross-posted to), I can just file them
accordingly, and delete the ones that I don't need.  Munge reply-to headers
if you MUST, but leave well enough alone with anything else the client has
