Like it says, though, all mailers have both a Reply and a Reply To 
All button.  Without rewriting the Reply-To header, both buttons 
do what they say, and I can choose whether I want to send a 
private reply or a public reply with ease.  If the list rewrites 
the header, both buttons do exactly the same thing and I've lost 
the option to send a private reply (without tweaking the headers 
manually).  Thereby removing functionality, which is a bad thing.
