Well, that's the mailing list where things should be discussed.
But when I press the "Reply" button (as opposed to "Reply to List" button)
I expect my e-mail to go to the person originating the e-mail. 
Reply-To: means "I'd like to get replies to some other address".
What if, say, a checkin message relates to some private topic
I'd discussed with someone: I'd like to reply to him personally.

I agree that responses to Python-Checkins should be handled on Python-Dev:
that's what the mail-followup-to header is for.
