There is another way of defining the two categories:
- people who use a MUA that supports mailing lists
- people who don't

Did anyone ever consider filing a bug report or feature request
for a "list reply" function for their favourite mail client?

It's not possible for performance reasons. There is just one message with a
large number of recepients per posting, so one cannot have customized
messages for everyone.
Currently 1431 people are subscribed to the vdr list.

Anyway, as the vdr list used to have Reply-To: the list,
I enabled it again, even if I think it is wrong (the mailman
admin interface even states: "Where are replies to list messages
directed? Poster is /strongly/ recommended for most mailing lists.").
Luckily mutt has a ignore_list_reply_to config option...
