I'm against this. This error is far easier to correct than accidently
replying to the list thinking that you are replying to the sender
privately, and then trying to rescind that email. Moreover, most of
the mailing lists I'm on don't turn on this behavior.
Some mail clients have list reply functionality (that is, they'll do
what you want if you are replying to mailing list mail). Maybe you
should investigate that.
