[Reply] should send the reply to the list.

Please no, not as a routine.  I intentionally read python-list as a 
newsgroup via gmane.news.org so I can pick messages as I feel like 
without my mailbox being flooded.  Anyone who want to read responses to 
something they send can do so via gmane.  Also, [Reply All] tends to 
collect multiple CC names, and most people don't have the curtesy to 
properly prune it.
