BTW, Bruce, your use of reply-to header fields is confusing me -- you 
nearly didn't get a directly addressed copy of this message.  Did you 
really mean this?:
From: Bruce Lilly <blilly(_at_)erols(_dot_)com>
Reply-To: Martin Dürst <duerst(_at_)w3(_dot_)org>,
    ietf-822 <ietf-822(_at_)imc(_dot_)org>

Yes, that's intentional (i am subscribed to the list; therefore
don't need a separate copy, and discussion should probably
go to the list; Martin had requested copies of the discussion
of Archived-At as he is not subscribed to ietf-822) -- the use
of Reply-To for lists is documented in RFC 822 and its
predecessors, and has been recently discussed on ietf-822.
[The Reply-To field had better have RFC 2047 encoding
rather than raw 8-bit characters, though]
