There is a patch available that will allow you to reference other
lists' memberships in the accept_these_nonmembers field. The
'umbrella_list' setting is really just an accessory, which redirects

Additionally, each sublist either needs 'require_explicit_destination'
set to 'No,' or the address of the umbrella list added to
