I just spent a few minutes looking at how to edit headers in reply 
messages in Thunderbird and I didn't quickly find it.  (I do find an 
Add-On that allows editing messages in reader, but not the composer.)

IMHO that's the wrong way to thread.  I believe threading should be done 
by the In-Reply-To: and References: headers.

I consider Subject: based threading to be a hack.  But it's a hack that 
many people use.  I think Thunderbird even uses it by default.  (I've 
long since disabled it.)

I blame ignorance and the prevalence of tools that encourage such behavior.

Yes I do use DMARC as well as DKIM and SPF (w/ -all).  I don't see how 
me using that causes problems with "list-reply".

My working understanding is that "list-reply" should reply to the list's 
posting address in the List-Post: header.

List-Post: <mailto:tuhs at minnie.tuhs.org>

What am I missing or not understanding?
