I also prefer that, but it's a matter of taste, and this lists tastes 
don't run that way.

I use procmail to add a Reply-To: header, and then dump the email into my 
separate Python in-box:

# Python tutor list
* ^Sender.*tutor.*@python.org
        | $FORMAIL -A "Reply-To: tutor at python.org"



(I've got a FORMAIL=/usr/bin/formail earlier in my .procmailrc)
