Ultimately, isn't that also just an NNTP post, via lmtp2nntp?

If the message is inserted directly into this folder via just lmtp,
then the Reply-To (Newsgroups, etc.) header won't be added anyway....

I know about the Reply-To evil stuff, but isn't this a bit different?
I mean, we're talking about a newsgroup, not a mailing list.  With a
mailing list, the Reply-To munging would impact all those on that
list.  However, with a newsgroup, it's only impacting that newsgroup,

Of course I guess this all gets *really* muddy if you're doing any
sort of mirroring between a list and a newsgroup (anybody try that
yet?), but that's something for the implementor of such a gateway to
worry about, right?
