I'm in that case ;-)

I would say as long as no one 'claims' the module, there shouldn't be an 
auto-release mechanism. For example, if someone works on a file and forgets 
to commit it, and someone claims the module, he/she will have time to commit 
his/her changes before the other person [Take]s the module, rather then 
auto-releasing it and loosing the work done (above-all if we're taling about 
2 hours time ;-).
