I'm very glad to see it, thank you!

Two comments:

1. The patch needs to be expanded to handle Sympa's reply_to_header 'forced' setting. The way it is now, replies to munged senders will be forced to the list, which is not great, especially if the list owner has actually chosen to force replies to sender.

2. The "reply to sender" function in WWSympa when viewing Web archives also needs to be modified to use the Reply-To header instead of From, and I'm not sure how to do that. I get lost in the MhonArc area.

We've got a mostly functional patch for #1 in production, but it's not perfect and I'm hesitant to put it out there. What I think it should do is, if the message has a Reply-To header that's been altered because of DMARC, then in the cases where the code would have set Reply-To equal to From, just leave it unchanged.
