Well frankly this is exactly the sort of thing this list was
originally setup for, alongside discussion and other admin issues. I

opened up so they could see what went on.

Not very practical, as the system doesn't know anything about the
moderators, and some only cover areas that rarely need any work, or
vacations etc.
