Sure, sounds reasonable - I'll add it to the list :)

Archiving is like deleting - but the patches aren't actually deleted (we 
want to keep them around, as people tend to link to patches on 
patchwork). It's just a flag to prevent patches from appearing in 
default searches; the default filters are configured to not show 
archived patches.

To archive a patch, just click the 'Archived' checkbox on the patch 
page, or set the 'Archive' property to 'archived' on the bottom of the 
patch list.
