send-email: support separate Reply-To address
In some projects contributions from groups are only accepted from a common group email address. But every individual may want to receive replies to her own personal address. That's what we have 'Reply-To' headers for in SMTP. So introduce an optional '--reply-to' command line option. This patch re-uses the $reply_to variable. This could break out-of-tree patches!
