It's the race condition. If the reply is to me and me only, then I want it
to go to me, otherwise

I filter on the List-Id: header for mailing lists that support it, see
http://spacepants.org/conf/dot.procmailrc for an example. I got your
personal reply to my inbox, and the list mail to slug-chat, as expected.
But sending 2 copies of the same message to me is a waste of my time and
bandwidth, hence why I munge the reply-to so that you don't send me 2
copies, unless you go to the extra effort of editing the headers yourself,
as you did.
