One problem is the default main client in ubuntu (evolution) doesnt have
a 'reply to list', so the only way is to hit reply-all, remove the
persons name, and cut+paste the cc line into the to: line.
kind of annoying really.
(if theres a reply-to-list and i haent noticed it i'll be thrilled to
have it pointed out  though ....)
