OK, after reading this back to myself for a bit, I realised that this is
a s**t idea. What I should've said was...

I think we could do with some kind of 'moderator team' - a handful of
people with no real technical skills, but a willingness to contribute a
few minutes a day to keeping *all* the GNOME list moderator queues in
check. They would just need to subscribe to 'gnome-listmoderator', and
deal with all the moderator requests as they see fit. The owner for all
of the lists would remain unchanged, but 'gnome-listmoderator' would be
listed as the moderator address for all the lists.

This takes the pressure off list owners to moderate their list (they're
usually also the project maintainer/active developer, so are often
distracted with other responsibilities anyway). Also, it will take the
noise away from 'gnome-listadmin'.

Any particular feelings or thoughts about this idea? Should I re-propose
this in an e-mail to *-list-owner gnome org?
