I think mail-strip-quoted-names removes <> and any other junk, so it
sounds like prepending \` to "info-" would be better than \<.  Do you

Not to rmail-dont-reply-to-names, ti the user's login name and email
address.  These two are literal strings, not regular expressions.

As to rmail-dont-reply-to-names, I don't think we should surround them
with anything; it's the user's job to do so when she customizes this

Thanks for the other comments, I will try to accomodate them.
