    Eh?  My understanding is that you probably can get rid of "lists"
altogether if all the entries in "lists" are duplicated in
"subscribe".  From the manual:

More precisely, Mutt maintains lists of known and subscribed mailing
lists. Every subscribed mailing list is known. To mark a mailing list
as known, use the ``lists'' command. To mark it as subscribed, use

    Note that every subscribed list is known.

    To say that everyone needs to change all of their "lists" entries
to "subscribe" entries is incorrect, however (although if Branden
isn't using "subscribe" for all entries yet, he probably wants to).
The only difference between "lists" and "subscribe" is that
"subscribe" entries automatically add a Mail-Followup-To header.
People who don't want to get CCs of list replies should use
"subscribe".  People who don't mind should use "lists".
