So is there a way to say it? {re me lo mu broda}, I suppose.

Hmm. I see. Is {ci broda} equivalent to {ci me lo broda}?

I'm still not sure how to {lo}-lessly do:
   {mehi ro lo ci lo prenu cu klama} [under current system]
   "There is a trio of people not all of whom are goers."

My best guess is:

   mehi ro me ci prenu cu klama
   mehi ro me ci lo prenu cu klama
