I wrote to this list about a related feature six weeks ago and didn't
yet receive a reply. Maybe the patchwork developers are on vacation.
Look for the subject "Reply to patch functionality".
Basically, the idea is to give web interface users the ability to reply
to a patch while preserving correct threading and subject. For pure
reply-to-list functionality I need the list email address which isn't
available anywhere. Your approach of storing the to/cc list is
definitely better because it keeps everyone in the loop. It may be
problematic if the list address is neither in to nor cc (e.g. in bcc),
but I'm not sure if that happens frequently enough for us to care.
