I have plans after 2.1alpha3 to hook up the admindb pages to the new
sender-centric moderation variables.  The idea is that you could sort
the held messages by sender, and then on the sender-held page do a
mass discard as well as add the user (via a "Ban" button) to
automatically add that address to the auto-discard list.

It's an interesting idea, but I doubt I'll implement this.  It
wouldn't be hard to do though, if someone wants to work out and
contribute such code.
