That's just bad manners and laziness, however. Every so often the
mailing list software bounces a message because people have included
everyone in a gcc thread plus the gcc mailing list itself in their
replies and they trip an "excess number of senders" spam rule. Also,
you will occasionally see "Don't cc me" in any of the other active
lists. I actually complained about quoting email once in the gdb list,
In any event, I wouldn't have suggested it if I didn't think that it
would receive some consideration in the overseers list. It has come
up there before, IIRC.
