That's what Ian thought, too. But the distance to the ISS was too large 
and another shuttle could have been in about 3 month there.
On the other hand I think the suits are specially designed to fit an 
astronauts body. So changing the person isn't quite simple. (But 
probably posible.) But then you still have the problem that the O2 tanks 
of the suits are limited.
