So did I, but we are *still* seeing proposals which would replace the
existing private "Reply" button with a new "Reply" button that
sometimes replies to the list.

IIRC Matthew had this as a user-configurable option. As long as the
default case is not to do it, it's OK by me.

We seem to be agreed on most things; I'm glad.

What I have in my tree so far is hopefully just stuff we can all agree

 1. Nag popup for "you are replying privately to a mailing list message"
 2. Nag popup for "you are replying to all, to many recipients"
 3. A configuration option for ignoring Reply-To: when it matches
    a List-Post: header (just in prefs; no popup).
 4. Fix two memory leaks.

I think we can all agree on those, right? I'll probably turn *both* of
those nags off personally, but I'll still benefit from novice users
seeing them.

Going back to the "Reply" button stuff... I agree that the default case
needs to be *not* to do it (where 'it' means replying in public).

Do you agree that *if* the user is sophisticated enough to actually go
and configure it, they're probably the kind of user who can manage to
press the correct button anyway? So this idea isn't likely to do very
much for the *really* novice users?
