"L" seems to work fine great in mutt. I do not have the word "gentoo"
mentioned in my muttrc, but it properly got the address from the
"List-Post" header. I also tried it on a "List-Post:<mailto:gentoo-dev@g.o>"
posting (that was CCed to @lists) and it was properly addressed to
gentoo-dev@g.o.

Congratulations. There is at least one properly behaving mail client.

It will be known how proper if it sets the Mail-FollowUp-To: header on
this mail.

I don't really care, but out of principle -- don't touch the header is
my vote.
