Oh, the way to discard list moderation queue entries from the command
line is to switch to the 'list' user and use the 'discard' command which
takes the moderation filenames as arguments.  The moderation queue files
can be found in ~list/data/ in the form


the trick often comes in the fact that with many such files, and such
long names, you can't delete them in one go because the command line is
too long.  So then I resort to using file globbing with number ranges,
etc.  I'm sure you can figure that out.
