Pretty much. Given some amount of extra coding, but that can mostly be
done in Perl so we can probably find someone who can buy this Learning
Perl book I've heard so much about and figure it out. :)

We can plug some extra stuff into the ezmlm thingies that can do "our
kind" of moderation when we need it. Moderated messages would then go into
the standard ezmlm moderation system. I can't think of how we can get that
to post rejected messages to -rejected, but it shouldn't be too hard.

But hopefully we won't need that anytime soon anyway. The most important
part is to get the social part of the referee system going.

I've created a subscribtion moderated list
for that, just waiting to hear who should get on it. :)
