Thank you for the confirmation Mark.  That's what I thought should 
happen in the B case.

I wonder if that hints at another option when munging the From: (i.e. 
for DMARC reason).  Add the author (read: the original From:) as a 
Reply-To and set the mailing list as From:.  That would provide the 
original author information that many people want and (correctly) 
complain that From: munging hides.

I think you'd have to have the discussion mailing list listed in the 
From: and Reply-To: in addition to the original author (From:).
