Public bug reported:

Currently a list can be either an umbrella list or not, but a list which
has normal and other lists as subscriber is currently not possible or an
administrative problem.

IMHO making the umbrella flag (as previously the moderated flag) per
subscribe instead of per list, this would allow to make lists with mixed
types of subscribers.

This would probably also make the following helpful automatisms possible
or at least easier:

Mailman sould recognize mailing lists on the same server when they are
subscribed to another list and set the umbrella flag for that subscriber

Mailman should automatically add the umbrella list's aliases as well as
non-members which are allowed to post to the appropriate fields of the
subscriber-lists on the same server. I suspect at least 90% of all
subscriber-lists are configured that way.
