Does this actually work?  In practice, I get the feeling that a large
minority at least unsets "nodupes".  XEmacs lists default to nodupes,
but about 1/3 of users have them unset, and a quick eyeball suggests
that over 95% of the ones with nodupes set have never posted or been
cc'd on the list.

I would say that the effect that such members get many fewer automatic
CCs from reply-all would be the main reason for the removal.  Even if
it doesn't work this is the right thing to do.
