Neither is OS X Mail.  If the list does munging, I can right-click on  
the 'From' address and choose 'Reply to Sender,' so I have both  
options. But if the list doesn't do munging there's no way to reply  
just to the list, except by hitting Reply All and then editing the  
addresses.    This seems backwards.
(The exception is if the list happens to insert a Resent-From  
header.  Then I can right-click on that.)

I'd wager there are far more mailers out there that get this wrong  
than get it right.  This probably because most mailing lists *do*  
munge, so mailers are being written with that situation in mind.
