As noted by Nikolai this has been covered ... ah, a few times :)

In any case, last time it came up I wrote the following procmail rules to
add a reply-to header for those who wanted it:

# Add Reply-To to HUMBUG General list
:0 cfw
* ^X-BeenThere:.*general at lists.humbug.org.au.*
| formail -a "Reply-To: general at lists.humbug.org.au"

# Add Reply-To to HUMBUG Chat list
:0 cfw
* ^X-BeenThere:.*chat at lists.humbug.org.au.*
| formail -a "Reply-To: chat at lists.humbug.org.au"

A bunch of people (myself included) have been using this for months so I
consider it well tested.
