No. Bad. Very Bad. Leads to incomprehensible Subject lines.

Then you should filter your mail before looking at it with pine. Make the
*computer* do all the work.
Here's a procmail solution for you:
# Debian lists ...
* ^X-Mailing-List: .*[<].*@lists\.debian\.org[>]
* ^X-Mailing-List: .*[<] *\/[^ ][^@]*
That'll filter mail from *any* Debian list. You don't have to modify it
when your subscriptions change. ^_^
