I consider this good practice, it is easily forgotten otherwise, and you
can see in GNATS if the maintainer is CCed.

We should fix this in GNATS, either by searching for the Subject when no
GNATS fields are given, by handling the CC in GNATS or modifying send-pr
to include an appropriate Reply-To address.

I know that we have a lot of misfiled PR answers in GNATS, but you can't
really blame the people for it.
