I'd prefer not to have regressions, so if anybody can think of cases
where the current behavior would be preferable, we should at least
leave it as a customizable option.  Not having used this, I don't
really have a qualified opinion on that.

Ob, by the way: redirecting to the proper list.  Postings through are a complete nuisance since I have to moderate them twice
with different mechanisms and time lags.

I'd be glad if other people did that too whenever they notice it in
the headers.
