The attached patch to CookHeaders.py will do what you want. With the
patch, if the list's first_strip_reply_to is No and the original post
does not contain a Reply-To:, Mailman will add a Reply-To: with the
address from the From: header (or the Sender: header if there is no

So with the patch if you set first_strip_reply_to to No and also set
reply_goes_to_list to This list, the delivered posts will have
Reply-To: containing both the list address and either the From:
address or the original Reply-To: address.
