The bottom line being according to 
that rfc2822 obsoletes rfc822's apparent permission for munging Reply-To 
to the list address as featured in
whilst rfc 2369 provides a List-Post field which "describes the method 
for posting to the list ... typically the address of the list" which 
KMail (and maybe other MUAs) act on.

In the case of the message to which I'm replying we have
List-Post: <mailto:sclug at sclug.org.uk>

In the case of Mozilla mail we have a 'Reply All' function which knows 
fsck all about List-Post :-(

Any mozilla-compatible (look&feel + mailbox/directory structure) clients 
out there that do?
