Nested groups / inheritance?

I don't see a way of adding a sub-group within a group in Bitbucket. I do see a lot of conversation around "stash" (apparently something different from `git stash`?) and LDAP/external user management, but not quite addressing what I'm looking for. 

I have several sub-teams within my teams that should all have a shared set of repos they can read from but different repos they should be able to write to. Is there a way I can set up my Bitbucket groups to mimic my organisational setup? Or do I need to set up one group per specific access set? 

I was able to set up nested groups in GitHub, so just trying to figure out if I can do the same here.

Great info; thanks @Craig Castle-Mead ! And yes, that is rather a pain for setting up my org structure. :(
