	One thing you could do is to configure ListB so that it will only 
accept messages if they are coming from ListA.  At that point you 
could/should turn off the archive for ListB, because nothing will be 
posted to the list unless it came through ListA, which has it's own 

	My understanding is that, as an umbrella list, ListA shouldn't 
have any regular recipients subscribed to it -- only other mailing 
lists.  This would also simplify your situation a lot.

	Not the way you've got it configured, no.

	Not without changing the code in Pipermail, no.

	I'm not sure I understand what you're asking for.  Could you clarify?
