Oh for $&#* sake.  I'm not going to get into the pros / cons of either way.

I tried following the bugs to discern the actual behavior changes that 
mail.override_list_reply_to changes.  But I was unable to make heads or 
tale of what it does.  Further, my tests didn't shed any light on things.

Will someone please enlighten me on how mail.override_list_reply_to 
behaves when set to true (the default) vs false?

I couldn't keep track of the previous behavior and current behavior 
through all of the things that I read.
