Incidentally, that kind of behavior is generally considered to be
wrong: the list remailer should not be adding the Reply-to header.

In fact, the Gnus mail/news reader has special support for such
mailing lists.  The manual for Gnus says:

|     Elements like `(broken-reply-to . t)' signal that `Reply-To'
|     headers in this group are to be ignored.  This can be useful if
|     you're reading a mailing list group where the listserv has inserted
|     `Reply-To' headers that point back to the listserv itself.  This is
|     broken behavior.  So there!
