Another judge needed for 28th circuit?

In this article from the Bristol paper, Judge Kirksey took advantage of one of his few opportunities to speak to the paper to mention that it would be a good thing if another judge was added to the 28th Circuit, perhaps the only circuit in Virginia with only two judges.

When I've heard this topic discussed in the past, one idea was that the 28th Circuit would be merged with the 29th Circuit, and a new judgeship added that would be split between the two, which sounds complicated. I don't know whether that idea was anything more than idle talk.
