[Mailman-Users] Umbrella Lists

I am currently installing Mailman as a replacement for majordomo. Mostly
everything is going smoothly.
I have a question regarding umbrella lists. I have 4 "real" mailing lists
and 5 aliases that redirect to some or all of these lists.
For the sake of explanation let's call the "real" lists :
The 5 aliases are (and send to -> )
all -> A-staff, B-staff, A-vis, B-vis
all-staff -> A-staff, B-staff
all-vis -> A-vis, B-vis
A-all -> A-staff, A-vis
B-all -> B-staff, B-vis
The 4 "real" lists are all moderated due to increasing spam and forged
The problem: If a message goes to one of the aliases then the message must
be moderated at-least twice or at worst four times. I would like to
moderate a message once.
What solutions are available? Are there solutions entirely within the
scope of Mailman?
I have instrumented a solution using umbrella lists (for the aliases) and
some clever procmail rules, but would like to know what others have done
in similar situations.
