which is why http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html
is especially useful on one particular dimension:

if reply-to is set, an error results in TOO MANY PEOPLE SEEING IT

if reply-to is not set, the error results in too few people, which can be
remedied by resending.

Why in the world, in this day and age, does anyone still set reply-to
for lists?  Haven't we all learned the "wide reply" button in our
mailer by now?
