I'm another one who dislikes the new system. It would be much better if 
the Reply-To field did *not* contain the sender's email address because 
when I reply to a message, I use the Reply-To field (of course) and have 
to delete the extra line because I want to reply to the list and *not* 
privately to the sender. So either the sender's address should be in the 
>From field or in a new header field, e.g. List-Original-Sender or 
something like that.
For now I have set up a procmail rule to strip the "via cctalk" from the 
>From field because this is ugly and redundant.
