[Mailman-Users] nesting lists

First of all let me say that I am very impressed with mailman. It does
almost everything we need it to do.

However, I ran into one major problem.

I am in the process of trying to migrate a complicated sendmail alias scheme
to mailman. Currently we have a hierarchy of aliases. For example, a top
level alias will point to lower level ones.

The problem that I have is that when I nest lists with mailman, if someone
is on more than one of the bottom level lists, they will get duplicate 
messages. Is there anyway for mailman not to send out duplicates in this case?

Also, it is not possible to not have people on more than one of the lower
level lists, so making sure that there are not duplicates is not an option.

Any help would be appreciated!
