If you set reply_goes_to_list option to 1(set Reply-To: back to
the list), pipermail archiver is confused because Reply-To: field
has the list address itself while pipermail expects Reply-To: has
the original poster's address.

I agree, its yet another reason to avoid setting reply_goes_to_list
option to 1. As for me, the most preferrable solution is modifying
$prefix/Mailman/Archiver/pipermail.py to care reply_goes_to_list
option when pipermail refers Reply-To: field. At least, it would be
fair if the above pipermail's behavior were mentioned somewhere
in the documentation.

I checked on Mailman-2.0.8.
