The idea was this:

1. I want to force my own reply-to header to make people send mail back
to the ellipsis address that I want.
2. Things like majordomo depend on having reply-to set for mail to the list,
so that replies go back to the list with minimal effort.
3. Having my own reply-to set by default obliterates majordomo's.

This was before I figured out just now that I could just set From headers
and most mailers would be happy.
