The mailer I use (kmail from KDE under Debian Linux) gives me three options:

if I press 'ctrl-l' I get "reply to list" and only the list is replied to.  
This works because I have told kmail that the folder I sort python-tutor mail 
into contains the mailing list "tutor@python.org".

if I press 'ctrl-r' I get the standard reply-to honoring.

if I press 'ctrl-a' I get "reply to all" which replies to the first address 
and cc's everyone else.

This works well for me.
