I'm not advocating for anything in particular -- I could care less if
the ombudsman commission made an OTRS queue. It's entirely up to them.

I'm just bringing up the issues with both sides, and making it clear
that *someone* will almost always have access to something, no matter
what. It's important that all sides of the issue are brought up before
choosing the best solution. :-)

Also, Philippe pointed out that there might be logs of who accesses
lists with the master password. So, while they can still access the
lists with the password, it might not be anonymous.
