I humbly think this encourages the wrong behaviour. People that don't
bother to look for the correct list, typically don't bother to edit
the CC fields, so you end up with their replies in gcc again. This
case is even worse, since he posted to both lists! And he got the
answer here, so he actually was right doing what he did.
I would like to propose that, as a rule of thumb, if you wish to
answer the question, first check the gcc-help archives whether it has
been answered already, if not, then the answer must be posted to
gcc-help and never to the gcc list. Of course this doesn't apply if
you reply but don't answer the question.
