Thunderbird is the only MUA I'm aware of that does this. Their theory is
since they offer a "Reply List" button, if you "Reply" you must want to
reply to the sender since if you wanted to reply to the list you'd use
"Reply List". This of course ignores everyone who uses "Reply" or
control-R habitually without thinking about it.

This has been argued to death in the bug reports. I wish they'd made the
default honor the Reply-To:, but we're lucky we got an option at all.
