Some desired features, do they exist?

I'm just getting started using mutt as my main user agent. It has long
been my MUA of last resort but the others suck more and more :(
So, naturally I'm going to post here asking for the features I saw
elsewhere and miss in mutt :-P For now, these are:
1. The prefix in the index indicating an address is a destination rather
than a source seems to be hardcoded to To, Cc or Bcc depending on the
header where it occurs. But these take up precious screen space. I'd
like them to be configurable, so I can change them to some Unicode arrow
characters or even to the empty string.
2. Mailman managed lists (and maybe others) insert the annoying [Foo-List]
tags in the Subject header. Other MUAs allow one to massage the Subject
header (for display only) so as to hide the tag, and (again) save screen
space. Is this possible with mutt? Should it be?
If it turns out these things cannot be done at present, I'm up for
writing some code to implement them. I just want to check that I
haven't overlooked something that's there, and that nobody else is
working on them already.
