I don't know the correct way to do this, but the attached hack seems to 
get the job done. The vertical spacing adjustment (-17pt), which brings 
the first item of the inner list onto the same line as the outer list 
label, was done by trial and error and may not line up perfectly. There 
likely is a better way to get the correct value, but it is (way) beyond 
my LaTeX skills.
