Place a "hold" on media while "checked out"

Currently we can place a "hold" on an item when it is on the shelf. It would be very nice to be able to create a waiting list for an item when it is on loan and not on the shelf. As a librarian, I have requests for items to be held for a patron when the current user returns it. Instead of writing a paper note, it would be nice to have Populi "hold" the request and notify the librarian of the "hold" when the item is "checked in." This would be helpful when an item is popular. It would also be helpful when a patron visits the library and does not find a wanted item on the shelf. This could potentially increase circulation.
