This also has the side effect of "training" (or annoying) your users who 
don't have "reply to list" buttons in their mail clients.  Which may be 
a reasonable side effect, or a really annoying one, depending on your 
list members.  When we did something similar for related reasons, the 
cries of joy and the cries of anguish pretty much cancelled each other 
out, but your mileage may vary.
