OK, let's summarize (RT = Reply-To address, LP = List-Post address,

Does that fit with what you're thinking? I'm ignoring nag screens,
toolbar changes etc. for now. 

Where 'to RT' of course means 'to RT if it exists, else SA'.

And 'to LP' means 'to LP if it exists, else to RT+CC'.(which in turn
means 'SA+CC' if there are no LP or RT headers, of course)

All that is what I have implemented, *except* that there should be no
'LP+CC' in the Shift-Ctrl-R row. It's 'RT+CC' for the first three
columns, and 'SA+CC' in the fourth where it ignores the Reply-To:

I had proposed that I give you an *option* to change the Ctrl-Shift-R
behaviour so that it precisely matches the Ctrl-L behaviour. But while
we're ignoring the toolbar for now, that proposal makes no sense :)

But really, I don't *want* to see a table like this. The behaviour
should be *consistent* across all the columns, or we're just making
things more confusing and making errors more *likely*. What we have
right now is:

 Ctrl-R: Uses the Reply-To: header if valid, else the From: header.
 Ctrl-Shift-R: Uses the same as Ctrl-R, and adds the Cc: recipients.
 Ctrl-L: Uses the List-Post: header if valid, else same as Ctrl-Shift-R.

A List-Post: header is considered valid if it exists.

A Reply-To: header is considered valid if it exists, *unless* the
anti-munging option is set and there is a List-Post: header which
contains the same address.

If we just take that and add an option to add 'Reply to List' to the
toolbar instead of 'Reply to All', how does that work for you?
