Nice thing with Mutt is when I go to hit [R]eply,
it asks 'Reply to: vox@lists.lugod.org? [Y/n]"

If I say [N]o, it will then ask  'Reply to: <SENDER'S ADDRESS>?'

...making private replies pretty easy.

But since 99.999% of the time I'm replying to the list, and have gotten
so used to hitting [R]eply (vs. [G]roup Reply or list reply or whatever;
since mail clients I've used in the past weren't as sophisticated),
so it's actually pretty convenient.

But, I totally agree with Pete.  It's really a choice thing (I believe
the page traditionally pointed out to explain "Reply-To Munging Bad"
has a sister page explaining "Reply-To Munging Good" ;^) )
