  Indeed, you can.

  You just need to remember the way MH expands aliases. In particular,
  the right hand sides are only expanded by the aliases below them in
  your aliases file. So, if you put in:

    dead-men: presidents, authors
    presidents: washington, lincoln, jefferson, roosevelt
    authors: thoreau, irving, london

  and type:

    ali dead-men

  then you would get the response:

    washington, lincoln, jefferson, roosevelt, thoreau, irving, london

  If you had the dead-men line after the presidents and authors
  aliases, the response would be:

    presidents, authors
