Currently, the only way I know to do this is to edit the approval
message and then forward it back to the original poster. Note that the
"todo" list for futre implementation at http://www.list.org/todo.html
contains both of the following:

#  Allow the moderator to edit posts being held for approval (make it
evident, either through a header or other means that the message was
edited by the moderator).
# New moderation choice: annotate and send to author for resubmittal.
Or just be able to annotate the message for multiple moderator
