OK, I should have mentioned that's not the preferred way to do
things.  :-)  The multi.surbl.org list has lists encoded with
bitmasks that SpamCopURI and urirhsbl won't work too well
with.  You *could* make many rules to handle every numeric
combination of the bits, but since this would require 2 ^ N
rules, it shows that the existing single-list programs aren't
really the right tool.  What's needed is some different or
added code to decode these back into their original lists.

Justin Mason is adding such code into a new program "urirhsblsub"
now.  Hopefully Eric Kolve will be able to roll similar code into
SpamCopURI in future also, or perhaps code up a differently
named program.

Yes, we could probably make some bitmasked tests.  I'll
consider it a task for later....  :-)
