 NACK.  Do a "du -h /var/lib/apt/lists" to see what you are really
speaking about, and compare it to your 86MB.  Having unstable with
main/contrib/non-free in sources list this makes up to 14MB.  The main
Packages file itself makes 9,1MB.

 Please check yourself before you speak of "tip of the iceberg", thanks.

 So long!
