Not for me.  I'm on 34 mailing lists (yes, it's crazy, and so often I have to 
mass delete one or another).  Only two of them have the annoying behavior of 
munging the reply-to.  Most act as XML-DEV does in that regard, thank goodness.

The question of whether or not to munge reply-to is a guaranteed flame-war 
starter, but I just wanted to put in my 2c that XML-DEV does this rightly, 
regardless of other technical issues.
