I can sort of sympathise with wanting to keep the name, but well, Takashi is 
the most productive person in ALSA and I'd say that lessening his burdens is 
quite a priority in itself, so what need be, need be.

I myself said that I don't terribly mind the moderating, but I certainly 
wouldn't miss it either. I originally volunteered for a few weeks...

Possible to arrange with David Miller that the old name will still work?

No, has too be significantly more, although it varies somewhat per day. But 
I alone moderate out more than that on average and I'm not alone. Are there 
no "discarded messages" statistic available from the moderation interface?
