Feel free to add comments there.

Matthew Barnes has shown interest in implementing this but wants to get
a sense of whether people are generally in favour or not. I'd like to
ask you to take a look at the proposal at the above URL and either add
comments on the BZ page itself or in this list thread. We'd be
particularly interested in hearing any arguments as to why this would
*not* be a good idea.

I would recommend consulting with a usability expert for this case. In
the recent past, we (me/sankar and some more people) noticed a HR hit
reply and assumed that the mail was being sent to the sender while the
ReplyTo field was munged to point to mailing list. And the confidential
mail (with some compensation info :D) was sent to everyone in the list.

So this is debatable, whether it was a mistake on the HR who was not
aware of the functioning of mailing lists or the munging of ReplyTo
header :) So we might need to keep in mind these kind of users as well..

Can reply be assumed that it can point to mailing-list or may be if the
software knows its a mailing-list, would it be better to say ReplyToList
instead of Reply ? In this case speaking about the tool-bar options, not
the short-cuts.
