I've meanwhile read quite a lot in the mailman lists, about mailman,
digests, possible troubles and workarounds, etc.
As a short-term solution to digests, I changed the default of the
list to mime-digests. Many MUAs, like Thunderbird, seem to be able
to cope with mime-digests, where you still can reply on a single
message. I was ignorant before about this because I never use digests.

Nothing against digests in general if they are used in a way that does
not result in incomprehensible replies. Answering on a single message
in a mime digest is a fine way to do this.
