The only way that this will go away is if pgp4pine, uw-imapd and
uw-imapd-ssl remove their Suggests: pine.

I think it's silly for uw-imapd to suggest pine; an IMAP server system is
rarely used also as an IMAP client.  Anyway, there is an imap-client virtual
package, so it is just a matter of changing pine | imap-client to
somethingelse | imap-client.

If anyone cares enough, they can file wishlist bugs against these three
packages to remove their references to pine.
