I don't see how the MLM's behavior (good / bad / indifferent) has
anything to do with this being a problem. Specifically that the sample
message has the Reply-To: set to the same value as the From:.
From: Grant Taylor <redacted at example.net>
To: Mailman-Users <mailman-users at python.org>
CC: REDACTED <redacted at example.com>
Reply-To: Grant Taylor <redacted at example.net>

I assume that you are referring to messages coming out of the MLM, in
comparison to messages that went directly to CC recipients and where
their replies would go. I.e. if REDACTED replies to the above message
vs a mailing list subscriber replying to the message they received.
I personally would try to avoid the above scenario, particularly when a
discussion mailing list is one of the recipients. Or I'd like configure
the Reply-To: to reflect the mailing list. (Of course that has it's own
complications and failure modes.)
