No, there is not. All lists on lists.digium.com provide the standard
List-<x> headers, and thus "Reply To List" works quite well for them. In
fact, I use that on every mailing list I'm subscribed to and it works
very well.

This problem can be especially bad for systems (like ours) where
receiving multiple copies of a message with the same Message-ID means
the second (and later) copies are discarded, so if you have the list
being filtered into a folder, the direct reply does not go there, and
threading gets broken.
