It's ugly, but having yet another switch seems to me to be the only way
to handle this.  Having the poster's address in Reply-To: is the only
way to address the information loss implied by the necessary change to
the From: header, especially for MUAs that expose only the address
comment and not the actual address, and especially for subscribers who
are not technically inclined and wish to simply hit "reply" and get a
reply to the original author.

This _should_ be a matter of choice for list admins, even if it seems
that they're already overloaded with choices pursuant to addressing the
DMARC issue.  Until something better comes along, we're just going to
have to deal with it.
