Sheesh, does your email client /still/ not get that right? Some of the
#gentoo-desktop bods were talking about this in evolution:
<johnny>        what's the deal with evo not allowing me to "reply to list"
<johnny>        it never shows up in the context menu
<tuXXX> johnny: and in the "Message" menu?
<johnny>        yes it is there, but no shortcut
<tuXXX> I have Ctrl+L
<johnny>        aha.. it's greyed out
<johnny>        yes, shortcut, but greyed out
<tuXXX> (but my evo is 2.21.1)
<tuXXX> It's greyed out for me on non-ML mails
<johnny>        aha.. i finally found a list that doesn't munge, thought some of
them were not doing it that were

(That last comment is interesting: it shows that many Gentoo users are only
just starting to learn that the lists are munged, and that this makes a
difference to the utility of a fully functional client.)

> How likely is that going to happen? Gentoo-dev gets it right
Gentoo dev mungs yes. Obviously we differ on whether that is the right thing
to do; I think it's totally appropriate for a novice user group, but a bit
lame for a dev m-l tbh.

> Flame commence for the billionth time...
Ah well, you know my feeling on this; it's up to the user group I guess.
