?authas= is your friend, even after queue action

Title
?authas= is your friend, even after queue action

Short, concise description of the idea
Upon being given a community-specific page for moderate.bml, the URL should show the argument for the page you're on.

Full description of the idea
Moderation is done from http://www.livejournal.com/community/moderate.bml?authas=communityname. Upon completing an action in the moderation queue (approve, reject, reject as spam), one is returned to the moderation page for the community one was just working on, but with the unargumented URL: http://www.livejournal.com/community/moderate.bml.

However, if one goes to that link directly (such as by reloading the page), one is dumped unceremoniously onto http://www.livejournal.com/community/manage.bml

Therefore, when returning to the moderate.bml page for a specific comm, the ?authas= argument should always be present.
