It's hard to argue with that, but again, I have to look at this
pragmatically.  It is very rarely possible to tell just by looking at a bug
whether it is a regression or not, and collecting this information can be
very time-consuming ("please boot from an older live CD and try it, then we
can decide on the importance of your bug").
