I've given some thought to this. MHonArc does permit the action you want,
but at the cost of turning all the punctuation marks in the mesage headers
to the URL %7E sort of coding, which looks awful.

What I've tried this time round is to add a "Reply to [ list | sender ]"
button at the foot of each message - though I then found that there were
problems with my messages, because their return addresses were just local
(since I'm a user on the same machine as the listproc server!). So a little
bit of sendmail tweaking is also necessary.
