hmmm so the reason everyone has go to through the hassle of first
realising they've not replied to the list and then sending it again
(not to mention the loss to the archives), is all because some people
might send something publicly that was meant to be private??

Other lists (such as the xsl-list) are reply-to-list and that's doing
just fine, no harm so far (in the 8 or so years I've been on there.
