[Mailman-Users] Umbrella lists: problems when unsubscribing

Need some help with umbrella lists (I think it was discussed
earlier in the list but it is not covered in the umbrella faq):
For example I have an umbrella list U, which has members - the
email addresses of other lists - A, B, C. I configured A, B, C
to receive mail from U without moderation (privacy options), so
everything works ok. Now consider some userA, who is a member of
A sublist, wants to unsubscribe, so he sends mail with
subj="unsubscribe" to U-request at mylistserver.com and gets a
response that he is not a member of U!!!
This problem can be solved by providing the necessary email
addresses in the footers of every sublist:
<footer of A>
Unsubscribe address: A-request at mylistserver.com
<footer of U>
but it is inconvenient when there are many sublists (>10), and
besides it's better for userA to assume he is a member of U.
So any suggestions?
