Or only doing the lede-dev → openwrt-devel redirect if openwrt-devel
isn't already in Cc (which isn't generally the right thing to do as the
actual To:/Cc: headers are utterly cosmetic and don't necessarily bear
any relationship to the actual destination of the mail, but would be
tolerable in this case.

Easier perhaps, just remove lede-dev from the cosmetic To:/Cc: headers
as the message passes through the list. Then when people Reply-to-All
they won't reply to both addresses.

I'll look at the latter.
