[Mailman-Users] not able to clear pending admin requests.

This actually addresses a problem I have and a more general issue with 
the admin interface.

It would be better for me if mailman did not pass me the whole message 
in the admin web page - the page gets huge if there are a number of 
these messages, and I appear to only be able to deal with one at a 
time.  This means I can spend ages dealing with these things if I am on 
a low bandwidth link.

Ideally the interface would give me a list of messages with basic 
information about them - sender, date, subject, why held etc.  I would 
be able to select any or all of them for approval/rejection and then 
click the submit button and have them all fired off at once.   A link 
on each message description would allow me to inspect a single message 
in more detail - basically giving the current interface but limited to 
a single message.

There may be related race conditions with doing this if there is more 
than one admin.  [actually there may be already and they may be as easy 
to fix with this method as the current]
