I apologize. It was my fault not to explicitly say I agree with most of 
the arguments already given (by far more competent people than me) in 
favour of the original behaviour. My position is that this is a list, 
not a messenger or chat system, and *in principle* exchange of messages 
is addressed to the community. I often learn interesting points from 
threads I neither started nor was supposed to be interested in. The 
default behaviour should reflect this. Each time I want to reply 
privately, I am taking an explicit decision and should act also 
explicitly, not by default.

I'm affraid this is not a fair "recapitulation of arguments"...
