[Mailman-Users] To Have One's Cake And Eat It!

I guess it's the perennial problem with all lists - is it a discussion
list or an announcements list? Invariably, there's bound to be
instances where you've set up one, but want the other! (Murphy's Law!)
There is a useful FAQ about this:
3.48. What about setting a "Reply-To:" header for the list?
I'm with the 'Keep-It-Simple' brigade, as the list I'm hosting is used
by non-techie folk who have barely grasped the basic concept of an
email list, let alone the benefits and problems!
I'm hosting a discussion list on MM 2.1.5, and what I'd like to try out
is a header/footer with something like the following:
"To continue the discussion, please reply to this email.
To send a private email to the sender, click here: ..."
This would need to be followed by a standard variable for the Sender.
I appreciate that will only produce an email to the sender, and not
populate the Subject line. It'd be nice if this were possible, but I
can only see this being done by an HTML mailto: link, which would
obviously not work with plain text!
So, has anyone done anything like this?
What would be the standard variable for the Sender?
