You don't want umbrella lists. All you need to do is put @members (or
whatever the name of the all-members list is preceded with '@') in the
Privacy options... -> Sender filters -> accept_these_nonmembers  setting
of all the smaller lists. follow the (Details for
accept_these_nonmembers) link on the Privacy options... -> Sender
filters page for more info.
