Which brings up a pair of features I'd love to see down the road:

  1) Ability to annotate a message in the moderation queue.  This is as
  simple as being able to associate a note with a given message which is
  then displayed (preferably highlighted) against the message in the
  queue.  Invaluable for multiple moderator scenarios and damned useful
  for me as I tend to deliberately leave some messages in the queue for
  extended periods (days/weeks) and would like the reminders as to why.

  2) Ability to sideline some messages from the moderation queue.
  They're still in the system, they're just in a different non-default
  queue.  Again useful both in the multiple moderation case and my more
  unusual moderation style.
