 |No, I just have control over the python program they're going to use.

 |newsgroup show up twice?

For mailers/newsreaders that support this header, it shouldn't.  Those that
don't (if any in use), they'll ignore it, so no there too.  Also IIRC, as a
fall-back SMTP filters out duplicate addresses on To: and Cc: lines (though
not between them).

For e-mail, this is what I use.  For news, you may want:

Mail-copies-to: [nobody|poster]

 |On the other hand, a null address means mail people send me just

IIRC, these headers are only looked at when the user does a "mass mail"
such as a news post or a group reply (includes mailing list).  Personal
mail should fall back to Reply-To: (or From: if not set) addresses.
