Please note that the way headers are handled in Thunderbird and
SeaMonkey is pretty problematic and adding such a feature requires
thinking about the basic design in that area.
I'm trying to find a reasonable approach with Thunderbird developers.

I've uploaded new Thunderbird packages to my 10.1 experimental repository:
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/mozilla/experimental/10.1

Thanks to Pascal for providing the preformatted patch ;-)

You can use the extension with those packages but you have another
option with them:

If you toggle the preference
mailnews.clobber_list_reply
to "true", Thunderbird should answer to the mailinglist only if you hit
"Reply All". That's also no perfect solution but maybe some people find
it useful. And if not just let it set to "false".

If you find any problem with the new builds, please tell me.
