I don't think so, but thanks. The basic problem right now is that the
moderation queue so full of spam that looking for legitimately held messages
is the proverbial search for a needle in a haystack. More people just means
more people being annoyed by that. :) By auto-discarding the messages which
are clearly spam, the moderation queue should be something actually useful.
