I am on numerous mailing lists and the majority of them use Reply as
the normal method for replying to the list.  As far as I can remember
I have never seen anyone accidentally replying to the list when they
meant to reply privately, whereas on this list mistakes are very
common.  It is not a matter of knowing how one is supposed to do it,
it is a matter of remembering that this list it is different from
most.  For most the expected behaviour when one gets an email from a
list is that Reply would go back to the list.  I understand the
principled arguments for having it as it is, in many ways it is the
"correct" way, but pragmatically it is not what most users expect.
