OK, so I replied and the message went only to you, not the list. Now I
reply to all and you get hit with my babble twice!

So why not set the reply-to to the list?

It is common (this is the way PostgreSQL does it for example) to use the reply-all and get babbled twice :). The reason PostgreSQL does it, is the delay on the PostgreSQL list can be some time, where my direct reply will likely be read soon.
