Semantics: the form only provides UI for enabling or disabling reply-to
headers that point to the list itself.  "Reply-to: dev@" on commits@
list happens by default and is not controlled by the form.

Sam --- this Reply-To on commits@ lists is one place where the -s
argument to might matter --- I assume 
"-s goober commits" will result in "Reply-To: goober-dev@" in headeradd.
